The ceremony was hosted by Regent’s University, in the presence of Ambassador Amar Abba, the director of Bloomsbury publishing house, Nigel Newton, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Pr Aldwyn Cooper, as well as Arab Ambassadors accredited to London and journalists.
Speaking on this occasion, M. Abba underlined the importance of the translation as “a bridge between people,” adding that “art and culture are a rampart against extremism”.
