Egypt and the United Nations (UN) have a longstanding and close relationship that dates back to the founding of the UN in 1945.
Egypt was one of the original 51 member states of the UN and has played a leading role in the organization ever since.
Egypt has also been a strong supporter of the UN’s development goals. In 2016, Egypt launched its Vision 2030, which sets the country’s long-term development goals in alignment with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and Egypt is committed to working with the UN to achieve these goals.
The relationship between Egypt and the UN is based on mutual respect and cooperation. The two organizations have worked together on a wide range of issues, including development, peace and security, human rights, and humanitarian assistance, helping improve the lives of millions.
