The Egyptian Presidency on Thursday evening mourned “with deep grief and sorrow the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II” who died on 8 September aged 96, following some 70 years as Monarch of the UK.
“On behalf of the leadership, government, and people of Egypt,” the statement by the Presidency said, “we offer our sincere condolences to the Royal Family in the UK, and to its government and people.
“Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was a unique role model of dedicated service to her people and country over more than seven decades. She represented the epitome of inspirational leadership and noble values as she honourably shouldered her responsibilities with wisdom and ability, and faithfully worked to extend bridges of understanding, dialogue, and cooperation between peoples, religions, and cultures. She promoted human values common to all, and became a symbol honoured by the whole world.”
President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi took to his Twitter account to express his personal condolences to the British Royal Family and the people and government of the UK, and to declare his absolute confidence in the ability of King Charles III to fill the void left by the departure of his late mother Queen Elizabeth II.
“I confirm our intention to work with King Charles for stronger relations between our countries and peoples,” the President posted.
