(January 28, 2019) On Monday, French President Emmanuel Macron visited the new administrative capital of Egypt outside of Cairo, an important new development that, according to Macron, could promote cooperation between the two countries.
Accompanied by the Egyptian president Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, Macron was shown the new opera house and arts complex in the new capital.
The 45 billion US dollar purpose-built city, under construction approximately 45 kilometers (28 miles) outside of Cairo, will house the presidency, the cabinet, parliament and ministries, as well as the military and 6.5 million residents.
Earlier this month, el-Sissi has inaugurated a newly built cathedral and mosque in the new city.
El-Sissi has made sectarian harmony a cornerstone of his rule, fighting the Islamic militancy and at the same time advocating the equality of the overwhelming Muslim minority and Christians.

Macron leads a large delegation on a three-day trip to the most populous country in the Arab world.
France, which sees itself as the birthplace of human rights, has come under pressure from human rights organizations and activists to raise the issue of human rights with el-Sissi, who in 2013 led the overthrow of a chosen but divided Islamist president.
Earlier, El-Sissi said that the two leaders have a positive dialogue & # 39; but repeated his argument that Egypt faces far greater challenges than human rights, including providing health care, housing and security for a growing population of 100 million people.
