Egypt has decorated the Pyramids of Giza, the Great Sphinx, and Cairo Tower in blue lights to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations on 24 October.

The headquarters of the foreign ministry in Cairo was also decorated with lights to mark the anniversary of the UN Convention going into force.

Director-general of the pyramids region Ashraf Mohieddin said in a statement that Egypt played a pivotal role as a founding member of the international organisation in 1945.

The foreign ministry has published posts in Arabic and English on its Facebook and Twitter accounts to shed light on Egypt's role in founding the international organisation, as well as to underscore important international resolutions involving Egypt, according to spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid.

Egypt's contribution to peacekeeping operations and its roles in protecting Arab and African interests, fighting terrorism, and coping with the coronavirus pandemic are also highlighted, Abu Zeid concluded.
