A Donation from Bangladesh to the BA
The Embassy of the People's Republic of Bangladesh in Cairo donated a collection of rare photos to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Sadat Museum, which reflects the Cairo-Dhaka relations during the rule of President Mohammed Anwar Al-Sadat and Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Mujib Rahman. The photos were added to the museum display for a certain period, in honor of this donation.
It is worth mentioning that Egypt was among the first countries that recognized the sovereignty and independence of Bangladesh, and that mutual visits between the two countries continued after President Sadat assumed office. President Sadat’s first visit to Bangladesh was on 25 February 1974.
