On the occasion of the National Day of Egypt and the 110th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Egypt and Serbia, Embassy of Egypt in Serbia headed by Ambassador H.E. Amr Aljowaily hosted a performance ”Blue Elephant” by Cairo Opera Modern Dance Troupe at the Belgrade’s National Theatre.
“I am pleased to celebrate 110 years of very close diplomatic relations with this performance. We speak different languages, but there is one universal language all people understand, the language of culture, film, art, music,” said Ambassador Aljowaily. “National Day of Egypt is celebrated at home with friends and family, and since we couldn’t invite you to Egypt, we have brought Egypt to Serbia. This will be the first time that Cairo Opera House has visited Belgrade.”
Minister of Culture and Information Vladan Vukosavljević also addressed guests and said “Serbia and Egypt share 110 years of friendship and diplomatic relations. Recently, an exhibition in the Historical Archives was opened that explains the depth of our relations.”
Heads of Mission and diplomats, as well as Belgrade’s public figures, attended the celebration of the National day of Egypt, enjoying ballet performance of the Cairo Opera House.
