In a moment of pride for India, the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi confers PM Narendra Modi with the ‘Order of the Nile’ award, in Cairo. ‘Order of the Nile’, is the highest state honour in Egypt. Both the leaders signed an MoU during their meet earlier after PM Modi arrived for bilateral talks with Egyptian President El-Sisi.
This is the 13th such highest state honour that various countries across the world have conferred upon PM Modi and is a moment of pride for India.
In the past nine years of his tenure, PM Modi has received many international awards including Companion of the Order of Logohu, Companion of the Order of Fiji and Ebakl Award by the Republic of Palau among others.
