PM Modi honoured with the Egypt’s highest honour, ‘Order of the Nile’

26th June, 2023: The country’s highest official honour, the “Order of the Nile,” was presented to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.

During their in person meeting at the Presidential Palace, El-Sisi welcomed Modi, who was in Egypt for a two-day state visit. On Sunday, Modi also paid a visit to Cairo’s iconic 11th-century Al-Hakim Mosque, which had been renovated with the aid of the Dawoodi Bohra community in India. In order to memorialise the Indian troops who lost their lives while fighting for Egypt during the First World War, PM Modi also paid a visit to the Heliopolis War Grave cemetery later on Sunday. PM Modi signed the visitor’s book at the Cemetery after presenting a floral tribute.

The two nations hoped to strengthen their strategic alliance during PM Modi’s two-day State visit to Cairo, Egypt, which would be the first by an Indian prime minister in 26 years.

The ‘Order of the Nile’ award is PM Narendra Modi’s thirteenth state distinction in the past nine-years.
