Portugal President to visit Egypt for state visit this week

 

Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa is scheduled to meet Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Thursday.

 

Marcelo is also expected to visit al-Azhar university in Cairo for a debate with students and meet Portuguese and Egyptian businessmen as well as the parliament.

 

This will be the first visit by a Portuguese president to Egypt for 24 years.

 

Ramalho Eanes was there in 1983 and Mário Soares in 1994, both of who were welcomed by Hosni Mubarak, the president of Egypt between 1981 and 2011, before he fell into disgrace and was sentenced in 2011 for war crimes and corruption.
