At the initiative of the Egyptian Association of the Soviet and Russian Universities Graduates headed by Sherif Gad, an invitation was sent online to celebrate the 56th anniversary of the transformation of the Nile Hungarian, which took place from 14 to 16 May in 1964, as part of the giant national project to build the High Dam.   

Secretary-General of the Egyptian Association of the Soviet and Russian Universities Graduates Fathi Togan noted that the congratulations of the Russian side is very important for being partners in this achievement.

"The community participation to congratulate the dam's makers reflects their historic achievement and their special place and in the hearts of Egyptians," Togan said.

Acting ambassador of Russia to Cairo Svetlana Subova sent a message congratulating him, stressing that the High Dam has become a symbol of the special Egyptian-Russian friendship, and is a strong foundation for the continuity of joint cooperation.

On this special occasion, Engineer Abdel-Hakim Abdel-Nasser, son of late president Gamal Abdel-Nasser, also sent an audio message congratulating the builders of the High Dam, the heroes of Egypt's greatest epic in modern times, for building an edifice that is one of the most important engineering projects of the 20th century in the world.
