The strong relationship between Egypt and France is based on mutual respect and understanding of each other’s civilizations and values, according to the speakers at the seminar held at the Middle East Studies Center in Paris.
Jacques Berque’s perspective on Orientalism has played a crucial role in fostering this relationship, which has existed for decades. The seminar aimed to highlight the historical connections between the two countries and promote further cooperation in various fields, such as tourism, arts, and education.
The speakers at the symposium include Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, Ahmed Issa, world-renowned Egyptologist, Dr. Zahi Hawass, and journalist Abdulrahim Ali, the director of CEMO in Paris.
The event will be attended by Ambassador Alaa Youssef, Egypt’s ambassador to Paris, a number of French newspaper editors-in-chief, parliament members, as well as top politicians and Egyptologists.
The symposium is being held alongside the exhibition “King Ramses II and the Gold of the Pharaohs,” which began on Thursday, April 6th in Paris and will continue for five months in the French capital.
