During his stay in Cairo, the Prime Minister will visit the ‘Heliopolis Commonwealth War Grave Cemetery’, a sacred site.

Apart from this, PM Modi will also visit the 11th-century Al-Hakim Mosque, restored here with the help of the Dawoodi Bohra community. The mosque was built during the rule of the Fatimid dynasty. There is also a sizeable presence of the Indian community in Egypt. In such a situation, PM Modi will also meet him.

PM Modi had said this before the visit

Egypt is the most populous Arab country and is located in a strategically important place. Before this visit, PM Modi said on Tuesday that ‘I am excited to make the first state visit to a close and friendly country (Egypt). We had the privilege of welcoming President CC as the Chief Guest at the Republic Day celebrations of the country this year. These two visits, spaced a few months apart, offer a glimpse of our fast-evolving partnership with Egypt, which has been transformed into a “strategic partnership” during President Sisi’s visit.
