The Presidency, The Arab Republic of Egypt

Today, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi visited and laid a wreath on the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial, in New Delhi.

The President’s words in the VIP Visitors’ Book at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial:

“In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful”

It gives me pleasure to express my sincerest pride in visiting the Memorial of Mahatma Gandhi, who marked a turning point in human history by embodying the principles and values of justice, peace, equality and non-violence. This is in addition to his courageous patriotic stances and unconditional bias to the choice of non-violent resistance.

The world needs to draw inspiration from these lofty principles, which contributed to the unity and renaissance of the Indian nation. We, in Egypt, have believed in and have been committed to these principles over various eras and ages. Egypt and India share joint bonds of civilization and history; they are also similar in their solid commitment to disseminating security, peace and stability and to supporting efforts toward development, prosperity and urbanization.
