Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi was awarded an honorary doctorate from the Bucharest University of Economic Studies (ASE) on Wednesday، during his visit to Romania as part of his current European tour، official spokesman for the presidency Bassam Rady said.
Rady added that the university's decision comes as a result of Al-Sisi’s pivotal role in leading Egypt during a difficult period of unrest to a new stage of stability، development and construction، launching deep structural reforms in the economic and social fields and implementing mega national projects in short time in various sectors of the country.
The spokeman went on to say that the university officials praised Al-Sisi's efforts in enhancing the education development through applying new academic reform programs in accordance with the latest international standards، in addition to establishing a number of new universities.
He pointed out that the university has lauded the President’s effective contributions to promoting peace and cooperation at the international level and his pioneering efforts to formulate a comprehensive international framework to combat the phenomenon of terrorism and extremist ideology in order to protect humanity as a whole.
Al-Sisi arrived in Romania earlier today and accorded an official reception ceremony upon his arrival at the presidential palace of Cotroceni، during which he held talks with his Romanian counterpart Klaus lohannis.
