The Swiss newspaper “Neue Zürcher Zeitung” hailed President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s success in transforming Alamein from a deserted city to a global one.
“New Alamein has become a bright dream,” the newspaper said. “It includes high-rise glass towers, clean streets full of palm trees, and luxurious hotels.”
“The city is the fruit of one of major national projects, supervised by the Egyptian government under the leadership of El Sisi,” the newspaper added.
In addition, the German-daily newspaper pointed out to the transfer of Ramses II obelisk to New Alamein city.
The New Alamein City
