It’s planned for September 17th and 18th, the two-day visit to Cairo of French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Laurent Fabius.
Aim of the visit, affirms French government in an official statement, is to express France’s full support to the “continuation of democratic transition in Egypt”.
Maybe this isn’t a good period, the whole Arab world is upset and angry with Western governments for the by now sadly known movie, where the prophet Mohamed is depicted in an offensive way.
During his visit Fabius will meet with the Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi, to talk about bilateral relations between the two nations and to strengthen the “ancient and friendly relations”.
Another topic of discussion will be the situation in Syria and the possible new scenarios after Assad’s eventual fall.
Besides Morsi he will meet with his counterpart, Mohamed Kamal Amr, the Secretary General of Arab League, Nabil al-Arabi, and the great Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmad al-Tayyeb.
