Egypt and Guinea
Thursday، 17 December 2015 12:00 AM
Egypt enjoys a historically distinctive relationship with Guinea since the latter's independence in October 1958.
This is reflected in the strong friendship which brought together the two historic leaders Gamal Abdel-Nasser and Ahmed Sékou Touré, whose decision to immediately secede from France contrary to the rest of the Francophone colonies in West Africa gave impetus to the revolutionary progress in that historic period.
Cooperation continued between the two countries since then, Egypt has sought to support Guinean staff through training courses organized by the Egyptian Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa in coordination with various government agencies in many areas such as health, judiciary, police, agriculture, education and training of diplomats and others.
