At the end of dinner, Sheikh Ahmad al-Abashiri reminded his compatriots of some norms of Islam and said they need to be an example of unity and understanding to all surrounds.

Sheikh Ahmad al-Abashiri arrived in Kiev on the invitation of DUMU in the framework of cooperation and continuous coordination between the religious institutions in the Arab Republic of Egypt headed by the Al-Azhar Al-Sharif and Dar al-Ifta of Egypt (control, ruling on religious and legal Affairs), as well as Ministry of Waqfs on the one hand, and the Islamic University of the Ukraine and DUMU on the other.
