Background: A Mongolian Parliamentary delegation has been visiting Egypt at the invitation of the Speaker of the People's Assembly, Mr. Hafez Badawi.
The visitors were met at Cairo airport on Tuesday (8 May) by members of the Arab Socialist Union -- Egypt's only political party -- including Dr. Mansur Said, deputising for Mr. Badawi, and the Mongolian Ambassador to Egypt, Mr. J.S. Damiddagva.
A member of the Central Committee of the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party, Mr. Namsarin Lob Sana Afghan, headed the Mongolian delegation, which was due to meet various Egyptian Ministers and to tour co-operative farms near Alexandria.
After the welcoming formalities, the Mongolian delegation was driven to the Nasser Mosque, where its leader laid a wreath on the tomb of ex-President Nasser.
