CAIRO – 29 April 2022: Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has extended greetings to Egyptians abroad on the occasion of Eid Al-Fitr, which starts this year early in May, the country’s Middle East News Agency (MENA) reported.

“Brothers and sisters, the Muslim sons of Egypt abroad, I am pleased to convey to you my most heartfelt congratulations and best wishes on the occasion of the Blessed Eid Al-Fitr,” Sisi said in a cable of greeting circulated by the Egyptian embassies and consulates.
