THE Egyptian Embassy hosted a reception to celebrate the country’s national day in grand style.

Egypt celebrates its national day on July 23 to coincide with the annual celebration of the Egyptian revolution of 1952 when the modern republic of Egypt was declared, ending the period of the Kingdom of Egypt.

This move allowed the country to become independent, setting it on the path to becoming the progressive nation that it is today.

The special guest at the event held at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur was Deputy Environment and Water Minister Datuk Mansor Othman, who was greeted by Egyptian ambassador to Malaysia, Ragai Nasr.

Besides members of the diplomatic corps, also present were Malaysian officials from various agencies and departments as well as representatives from the business sector.

In his speech, Nasr said Egypt valued its close relations with Malaysia and was focused on taking bilateral ties to a higher level.

The envoy said he looked forward to furthering the economic advancement of both countries.

Egypt will lead the world in addressing shared challenges at this year’s 27th Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is scheduled to be held in Sharm El Sheikh in November. – By PAUL GABRIEL
