Egypt’s Ambassador to Bujumbura, Abeer Bassiouni Radwan, last week opened an electronic library and a permanent exhibition at the embassy. The exhibition displays Egyptian works of artistic, historical and religious nature, and highlights Egyptian culture throughout various historical ages.
Ambassador Ms Radwan said the ground floor of the embassy had been allocated to house the exhibition which includes pieces of Egyptian modern art, folk and spontaneous art, Islamic Art and Arabic calligraphy, as well as valuable pieces from mosques and churches.
The new library offers e-material translated into French. There are also more than 100 films, songs, religious recordings, documentaries and historical works available.
The Ambassador said the exhibition and e-library will officially open in October 2017, to celebrate Egypt’s national day of 6 October which commemorates the crossing of the Suez Canal by the Egyptian army in 1973 and their entry into Sinai which had been occupied by Israel for six years. The crossing marked the beginning of the process by which Egypt regained the Sinai and made peace with Israel in 1979.
