Nasser au Pakistan: une visite hautement symbolique (& vidéo)

24 avril 1955. Le sommet de Bandung s’achève. Il a rassemblé toutes les grandes figures de l’indépendance du Tiers-monde: l’égyptien Gamal Abdel Nasser, l’indien Nehru, l’indonésien Soekarno…(...)

 

Ce n’est pas un anodin si le président égyptien de l’époque Gamel Abdel Nasser – héraut du nationalisme arabe – s’envole la même année pour le Pakistan.

 

Plus de quatre décennie plus tard, que vient chercher le président Morsi en Asie? Un partenaire économique? Un Frère? C’est la première visite officielle d’un président égyptien depuis près de 50 ans.

Egypt-actus's insight:

State television aired footage of Pakistani Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf as he handed the certificate to Mursi. 

During the ceremony, Mursi gave a speech referring to the role of Islamic civilizations in spreading science and knowledge that, according to him, led to the enlightenment of the West. 

He also stressed on the importance of working hard to revive the Islamic world’s leading role in literature, physics, chemistry and other sciences and fields.

According to the presidential statement, Mursi will meet with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Indian President Pranab Mukherjee as well as senior officials from both sides.

Pakistan: première visite officielle d'un président égyptien en 40 ans

Pakistan: première visite officielle d'un président égyptien en 40 ans | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Le président égyptien Mohamed Morsi est arrivé lundi à Islamabad pour la première visite bilatérale d'un chef d'Etat égyptien au Pakistan depuis Gamal Abdel Nasser dans les années 60, selon la télévision d'Etat pakistanaise.
Le président Morsi, à la tête d'une délégation "de haut niveau", a été accueilli par des responsablespolitiques pakistanais et des diplomates sur le tarmac d'un aéroport militaire, selon les images de la télévision d'Etat.  
"Cette visite représente un tournant dans les relations traditionnelles et amicales entre les deux grands pays musulmans", selon le ministère pakistanais des Affaires étrangères, précisant qu'il s'agissait de la première visite bilatérale d'un président égyptien depuis Nasser. Depuis, le président Sadate avait séjourné au Pakistan en 1974 dans le cadre d'un sommet multilatéral.
"La décision du président Morsi de choisir le Pakistan pour sa première visite en Asie du Sud est le signe que l'Egypte veut ajouter un nouveau chapitre à ses relations bilatérales avec le Pakistan", a indiqué un porte-parole du ministère.
Des entretiens avec le président pakistanais Asif Ali Zardari devraient déboucher sur la signature d'accords bilatéraux pour renforcer la coopération en recherche et technologie et les échanges commerciaux entre ces deux grands pays musulmans.
Le président Morsi avait annulé à la dernière minute en novembre une visite prévue à Islamabad pour assister au sommet du D-8 ("Developing Eight"), un forum visant à renforcer la coopération économique entre huit grands pays musulmans (Indonésie, Malaisie, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Iran, Turquie, Egypte, Nigeria).
La visite du chef d'Etat égyptien intervient deux jours après la fin de la législature au Pakistan, prélude à des élections nationales attendues à la mi-mai et dont la date précise doit être annoncée sous peu par le président Zardari. AFP, via Le Parisien http://www.leparisien.fr/flash-actualite-monde/pakistan-premiere-visite-officielle-d-un-president-egyptien-en-40-ans-18-03-2013-2649499.php

Mursi Leaves Unrest Behind in Visit to Pakistan and India

Mursi Leaves Unrest Behind in Visit to Pakistan and India | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

(....) Speaking to reporters after his meeting with the Indian PM, Mursi said that he wanted Egypt to be the “hub of Indian exports to Africa.”  His Indian counterpart said that “the agreements that we have signed today are a clear manifestation of our desire to impart a new dynamism to our relationship.”

Before embarking on his south Asia tour, President Mursi left Cairo amid tempestuous circumstances. The office of the Muslim Brotherhood’s guidance bureau, located in the Mokattam district of southern Cairo, has recently been the scene of two days of violent clashes. Security sources revealed that the violence, which broke out between security forces and demonstrators opposed to the Brotherhood’s rule three days ago, came to an end Sunday after dozens had been injured, some of them seriously.

 

Now, Mokattam district is experiencing a state of uneasy calm. Intensive security reinforcements have been deployed to guard the Brotherhood’s bureau, while plain clothed security personnel are patrolling the district.
