Our mission

This is a historic moment for Egypt and the region. Egypt’s transition to a democratic state has the potential to be the role model for many other states in the region. Britain has a long history of strong shared interests with Egypt, and we will continue to be an active and engaged partner, offering our help and assistance as Egypt continues the process of rebuilding both itself and its leading role in the region.
