Egyptian varsities to collaborate with Pakistan: VC Cairo University

LAHORE: (Wednesday, March 29, 2023): The vice chancellor of Cairo University, Egypt has said that Egyptian universities intend to collaborate with Pakistani universities in various research fields and want to launch mutual students-teachers exchange program. He expressed these views in a meeting with the Director of Punjab University Urdu Development and Translation Centre, Dr Zahid Munir Amir. It is pertinent to mention here that a good part of Pakistan's foreign trade goods passes through the Suez Canal. In 1956, contrary to the wishes of the world powers, Pakistani Prime Minister Feroze Khan Noon took a bold stand in support of Egypt, on which former Egyptian President Anwar Al-Sadat said, ‘My lost brother Pakistan has been returned to me’. These revelations have come out in the recently published travel book of Egypt, ‘Msirkhawab aur Tabeer’. The author of the book, Dr Zahid Munir Amir, has been teaching at Al-Azhar University for a long time. Before this, his Arabic book ‘Fi Hab-e-Misr’ has been published about the Muslim Brotherhood. He is the author of fifty books on various scientific and literary topics. ‘Msirkhawab aur Tabeer’ has been published by the famous publishing house Qalam Foundation International.
