Al-Remaya Square witnessed an intensified security earlier today، Thursday، in coinciding with the celebration held by Antiquities ministry to transfer Ramses II statue to Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) Entrance.
The celebration is attended by 40 foreign ambassadors، 7 ministers، and a number of officials، and cadres at Antiquities ministry.
Antiquities Minister Khaled el Anany said that the process of transferring Ramses II statue to its new place in the Grand Egyptian Museum will take one hour.
The statue of Ramses II، currently placed in the Grand Egyptian Museum، will be transferred to the museum’s entrance hall to be the first monument that visitors will see، Anany added.
The statue، which was discovered in 1820 in Badrashin، Giza governorate، was first placed in Ramses Square before being transferred to the Grand Egyptian Museum in 2006.
The Arab Contractors Company will implement the process.
