Mohamed ElBaradei, Chairman of the Constitution Party saluted Egyptian women and announced that he is proud of them, saying that the nation needs them in order to progress. That was upon discovering during his return from a visit to Brazil that the pilot of the plane was an Egyptian woman.
"The pilot of my Egypt Air flight today was a woman. Egypt's women are key to its future" ElBaradie tweeted. He expressed his happiness and pride of Egyptian women on his twitter account on Tuesday.
ElBaradei's visit to Brazil was to conclude cooperation procedures between the " Constitution" Political Party and its corresponding the Brazilian Worker's Party.
This visit came in order to benefit from the experience of former Brazilian President Lula da Silva, who led Brazil from being a Third World country
to reach the status of 8th largest economy in the world.
The meeting between the two parties had been postponed more than once because of the party's internal elections in Brazil.
ElBaradei's visit included a lecture in the series of lectures "The Horizon of Knowledge", which aims to discuss the latest human knowledge in the fields of technology, literature, architecture, economics and art.
