Filipo Grandi, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, concluded his visit to Egypt by visiting the Giza Plateau.

He was accompanied by his assistant and director for the Middle East and North Africa Bureau Amin Awad.

Director-general of the Giza Plateau Ashraf Mohi, who escorted Grandi, told Ahram Online that Grandi was fascinated with the greatness of ancient Egyptian civilisation and the efficiency of the ancient engineers and workers who built its monuments.

Mohi added that Grandi said he would post many tweets on the ancient Egyptian civilisation in order to encourage the whole world to visit Egypt and enjoy touring its great historical sites.
