The Czech president, Václav Klaus, has begun a three-day visit to Egypt. On Sunday evening he will take part in an event marking the launch of the Czech-made Škoda Superb car on the Egyptian market. Mr Klaus will meet the Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak on Monday, as well as taking part in a signing of the Arabic version of his book Blue Planet in Green Shackles, which questions the belief that mankind is responsible for global warming. On the last day of his visit the Czech president will hold talks with both Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif and the general secretary of the Arab League, Amr Moussa. It is Mr Klaus’s second visit to Egypt.
