  • Description

    President Anwar Sadat on Wednesday (27 Jan.) at the Abdin Palace in Cairo received a delegation of Soviet space experts, including the first woman cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, and her husband Andrian Nikolayev.

    The President awarded cosmonaut Valentina the Nile collar, the highest decoration for women in Egypt, and in return she gave the U.A.R. President the Yuri Gagarin medal, usually conferred by Soviet cosmonauts on distinguished visitors to the space town outside Moscow.

    Valentina and the other space experts arrived in Egypt from Moscow on Tuesday (26 Jan.) on a nine-day visit following an invitation extended by the late President Nasser on his visit to Moscow in July last year.
