India was one of the first countries to express its support to the democratic transition after January 25, 2011.
India and Egypt were founding members of the Non-Aligned Movement, and the friendship between President Gamal Abdel Nasser and Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru underpinned the Treaty of Friendship signed in 1955.
As for the political side, India and Egypt still represent the main driving force for the Non-Aligned Movement.
Egypt and India are important countries in the Non-Aligned Movement, which submitted a proposal on reforming the structure of the United Nations with the Security Council in particular so as to be more expressive and representative of the international true state of affairs and provide further international democratization to the UN resolutions. Egypt and India are of specific regional weight in Asia and Africa that qualifies them to join the permanent membership of the Security Council.
