Relations between Egypt and France span from the Middle-Ages to the present. They are part of France-Africa relations.
France had signed a first treaty or Capitulation with the Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt in 1500, during the rules of Louis XII and Sultan Bajazet II, in which the Sultan of Egypt had made concessions to the French and the Catalans, and which would be later extended by Suleiman the Magnificent.
Further relations dates back to Napoleon Bonaparte's Expedition in 1798 which greatly affected and influenced the Egyptian life. Relations started to deepen in Mohamed Ali reign when Egyptian missions were sent to France to specialize in modern sciences and fine arts.
Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak has visited France 41 times.
