The full impact of this week will likely only become clear in the months ahead, but analysts in Cairo are convinced relations between China and Egypt, and the broader region, have moved to a new footing.

In urging the international community to respect homegrown political solutions, Chinese President Xi Jinping’s address to the Arab League was well targeted and well received.
