CAIRO – 4 April 2021: A number of ministers and ambassadors of different countries expressed their admiration of the Royal Mummies Parade held on April 3 congratulating Egypt on the success of the event.

Emirati Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdulla Bin Zayed al-Nahyan retweeted a video of the parade with a caption reading "Egypt renews its beauty."

 

UAE's Envoy to Egypt and the Arab League Hamad Al Shamsi tweeted, "Egypt impresses the world with the Mummies Parade, which is an exceptional event that contends the profoundness of the Egyptian civilization dating back to the roots of history and signifies the uniqueness of what ancient Egyptians had offered to the entire humanity. That would have not been achieved without the outstanding efforts of the Egyptian leadership that pioneers the modern renaissance."

 

Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Egypt and the Arab League Osama Nugali posted photos of the parade tweeting, "Egypt in its most splendid image taking pride of its civilization in the royal mummies' parade from its antique museum to the new one. It is certain to sense the beauty of the event in all its details, particularly when one attends it upon an invitation by the presidency. Thanks Egypt, the civilization and history."

 

Nugali had earlier congratulated Egypt on the parade saying that the mummies are "in trustworthy hands."

 

Oman Ambassador to Egypt and the Arab League Omar Bin Nasser al-Rahby tweeted photos of the parade saying, "A golden majestic parade honoring the kings of Egypt throughout history under the auspices of the Egyptian president in a journey from the Egyptian Museum to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat. Greetings to Egypt and people on that achievement and resurrection of the spirit of civilization and culture. The Egyptian people and Arabs shall be proud of that achievement. Congrats to Egypt."

 

Yemeni Ambassador to Cairo Mohamed Maram told Youm7 that "Egypt still continues to dazzle the world by its greatness… This event is a proof of the singularity of the work of ancient Egyptians."

 

Greek Minister of Tourism Harry Theoharis told Middle East News Agency (MENA) while attending the event that, "the parade gives hope like the beam of Alexandria lighthouse in time where the world is experiencing pressure because of the COVID-19 pandemic." He added, "I believe this event is a great idea to promote tourism in Egypt and renew the interest in the diversified history of Egypt and not just the ancient Egyptian one."

 

The U.S. Embassy in Cairo tweeted, "We loved watching Egypt’s historic Pharaohs’ Golden Parade! Congratulations again for safely moving 22 ancient Egyptian royal mummies to their new resting place at the National Museum of Egyptian civilization."

 

Egypt transferred Saturday 22 mummies of 18 kings and four queens to the National Museum for Egyptian Civilization in Cairo's Fustat from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square.
