CAIRO – 13 July 2021: The Supreme Council of Culture in cooperation with the Sector of Foreign Cultural Relations will host on July 14 at 6 p.m. a new evening of the “Culture Relations” initiative celebrating Kingdom of Morocco.
This comes within the framework of the "Cultural Relations" initiative launched by Egypt’s Minister of Culture Inas Abdel Dayem.
Abdel Dayem stated that the "Cultural Relations" initiative is more than just an initiative aimed at implementing international cultural activities in light of the global pandemic’s impact on the movement of international cultural exchange, as the matter goes far beyond that. The initiative aims to emphasize the value of cultural relations between nations, and enrich the human civilization in general.
Morocco was chosen to be celebrated within the initiative not only for its outstanding contribution to human civilization, but also for its long history and endless cultural relations with Egypt.
It is worth noting that Egypt and Morocco enjoy distinguished relations, as Moroccan jurists, scholars and students of science traveled to Egypt to seek knowledge for years before returning to Marrakesh, Fez and other Moroccan cities, or staying in Egypt to work in teaching or trade.
The Moroccans have historically left a mark in the fields ofa trade, construction, preaching, education and mysticism, and they represent the largest expatriate Arab Islamic sect. Al-Azhar still has “The Moroccans’ Door” within its twenty-two historical doors.
