Egypt plans ‘love campaign’ in India: Envoy

DELHI

Admitting that trade and commerce were the most important tools in a bilateral relationship, Egyptian Ambassador Khaled El Bakly says his country was going all out to spread a “love campaign” to strengthen people-to-people contacts between the two ancient civilisations.

“This art exhibition of Egyptian treasures and calligraphy is the first one in the love campaign we are planning. Next there will be a film festival followed by folklore festival and music festival. We want to connect to more people and we want to connect with Indian people culturally,” Bakly told IANS.

The Egyptian art exhibition at India International Centre will take place April 24-30 and the embassy plans to hold a similar exhibition in Jamia Milia Islamia soon, he said.
