“China is a friendly country and exchanges between China and Egypt could date back to thousands of years ago. President Xi’s visit will bring more assistance to our country, and help Egypt out of financial difficulties.”

“China never attaches political conditions to our economic and cultural cooperation. This is a strong point, which is different from the cooperation with the U.S. and some western countries. China is a responsible country.”

Some Egyptians say it is urgent for Egypt to learn from China and launch cooperation with more countries.
