British Prince Charles and his wife Camila flew to Cairo on Thursday for the first time in 15 years.
Their visit, which seeks to promote tolerance and strengthen bilateral ties, is part of their first foreign trip since the onset of the corona virus infection.
Charles was talking to the President
After arriving in Cairo, the couple officially welcomed President Abdul-Fattah al-Sisi at the Presidential Palace and later met with the country’s top Muslim and Christian leaders.
Under the leadership of former General al-Sisi, Egypt has achieved a certain degree of stability, but at the same time the government has been overseeing the most comprehensive crackdown on political opposition for decades.
During the meeting, Charles and al-Sisi discussed efforts to combat terrorism and extremism, as well as cooperation between countries in areas such as health and higher education, the Egyptian presidency said.
The Royal Highness will discuss British-Egyptian cooperation in the country on climate change, religious tolerance and bilateral relations, British Ambassador Gareth Bailey announced last week via the social and micro-blogging network Twitter.
They visited Jordan before Egypt
Egypt is expected to host the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27 next year.
Charles and Camila visited the most famous archeological sites in Egypt, including the Pyramids of Giza.
The couple had already completed a three-day trip to Jordan this week, where they met with King Abdullah II. And Queen Rania and visited religious and historical sites.
