Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has begun to implement his plan of diversifying Cairo's pro-US foreign policies established by his predecessor Hosni Mubarak, Middle East observers said, as the new leader prepares to make his first-ever visit to China.
Morsi, the first president of post-revolution Egypt, chose China for his debut diplomatic visit outside the Middle East since he assumed power in June. He is also scheduled to visit Washington on Sept 23 to attend the UN General Assembly session.
The Foreign Ministry announced earlier that Morsi will pay a state visit to China from Tuesday to Thursday.
