King Ramses II statue adorns Egypt Square in Ecuador

CAIRO - 17 August 2018: Ecuador became the first Latin American country to open a public square in its capital Quito, bearing Egypt s name, and adorned with a replica statue of ancient Egyptian King Ramses II, Egypt’s foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

Egypt gifted the statue to Ecuador in November 2016 and was erected two months later in a ceremony attended by top Ecuadorian officials. The square also features miniature models of the Giza Pyramids.

Egyptians officials had previously said the move will help attract tourists and promote Egypt s ancient history.
