Egypt’s Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly arrived in Luxor, on Wednesday, in his second visit to the southern city within a short period, to follow up on the comprehensive development project in the region. He stressed that President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi directed the government to restore the civilized image of Luxor.
Madbouly said that the President watched, in a meeting on Tuesday, some pictures that illustrate the great effort made by the Egyptian youth to restore the Luxor and Karnak temples, expressing his pride in their work.
The President also praised the Supreme Council of Antiquities for its tireless efforts to restore the original colours of these thousands-years-old temples.
Madbouly was accompanied by the Ministers of Tourism and Antiquities, and Local Development during the inspection visit.
Luxor is awaiting a number of large openings during the coming period.
Madbouly said, “I will make more visits to the area until the opening date. We are keen to improve the image of Egypt in front of the whole world. The ceremony of transferring the Royal Mummies was a unique event and the world will talk about it for a long time”.
