India and Egypt are two of the world's ancient civilizations with a history of close contact. India and Egypt enjoyed an exceptionally close relationship during the Nehru-Nasser era, and signed a Friendship Treaty in 1955. The birth of the Non-Aligned Movement was, inter alia, the outcome of this relationship. Since the 1980s, there have been four Prime Ministerial visits from India to Egypt: Rajiv Gandhi (1985); P. V. Narasimha Rao (1995); I. K. Gujral (1997); and Manmohan Singh (2009). Prime Minister Manmohan Singh participated in the XV NAM Summit held in Sharm EI-Sheikh in July 2009.
