The foreign relations of the Egyptian Empire are administered by the Imperial Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Current Egyptian relations have been greatly defined by both the First and Second World Wars, which saw the decline of its regional rivals.
Egyptian foreign relations can be traced all the way back to ancient times, consisting of active, working treaties between Egypt, and other nations. Having achieved control over most sea routes from Europe to Asia, Egypt became wealthy through tolls and tariffs from ships passing through their waters.
Even before the World War, Egypt had solidified its position as a great power on the world stage, having territorial positions several spots on the globe. After the War, it emerged as one of the dominant powers, rivaled only by states such as the Roman Republic.
Ghanese Kingdom The Ghanese Kingdom and Egyptian Empire have a history of territorial disputes, due to shared borders, and the past expansionist policies of both states. These of contributed to cold relations, with occasional bouts of violence.
Relations hit a low point, however, during the reign of King Abioye II, a vocal opponent of Egypt, came to power. He called the Empire a "nation of snakes", interested only in expanding their power base. Not long after, Anan Muda, a Ghanese citizen, was arrested under charges of espionage, too which Abioye responded by expelling the Egyptian ambassador, and threatening further actions if the citizen was not released. Troops were amassed near the border (an action condemned by most nations), as well as near Egyptian colonies in South America. Under political pressure, Pharaoh Horemheb XII released Muda back to Ghana. While Ghanese troops pulled back, the ambassador was not allowed to return. Relations further deteriorated after the assassination of Horemheb, and the ascension of Pharaoh Seti XIV, when Abioye commented "Should the world mourn when a beast is slaughtered?", too which Seti responded by calling Abioye an "instigator" and a "pig" saying "What kind of man insults a passed father straight to the face of his mourning son?".
After the surrender of King Kwame IV at the end of the Second World War, Egypt was the primary occupying force in Ghana. Upon the end of the occupation, Seti re-established relations between Egypt and Ghana. Relations between the two countries have since improved.

China is Egypt's closest ally and military partner.
The two countries engage in regular joint-military exercises, and the Egyptian Fifth Fleet, headed by the carrier PIS Nepthys, is docked in Taiwan. Likewise, the Chinese 3rd Fleet, headed by the carrier INS Haizou, is docked in Australia.

Egypt and Rome share the longest history of international contact out of any other country, having established diplomatic relations in the late BC years. During their earlier years, the two governments were often at odds, participating in conflicts often directly or indirectly, and generally on opposing sides. The first major conflict between the two directly was the Second Punic War, where the Egyptians allied with Carthage against the Romans.
The two were enemies during the World War, during which a combined Roman and Russian bombing raid attacked Sais, killing hundreds of thousands of Egyptians. Later, Egypt would drop a nuclear bomb on the Sicily, and while casualties were not as great, it helped spur Rome into surrender.
Currently, relations between the two are relatively peaceful. However, this has not stopped controversy from arising. There are occasionally anti-Roman protests in Egypt at the Roman embassy in Sais, and vice versa in Rome. Fortunately this has never escalated into all out violence, the worst of the protests being a rock being thrown at the Roman embassy, but not doing any damage.
Cultural conflicts occasionally flair up between the monotheistic Christians in Rome, and the polytheistic Kemetists in Egypt. The Bishop of Rome has often pubically called the Egyptians for worshiping "false gods", to which the Egyptian priesthood responds by accusing Romans of being intolerant.
Contact between Egypt and Russia was limited originally, due to the significant distance between the two. It was not until China allowed Egyptians complete passage through their territory did the Egyptians make contact with the Russian Tsardom.
Currently, relations between the two are mixed. Since Russia sided with Rome against Egypt and its allies during the World War, there is still anti-Russian sentiment in Egypt. Fortunately, due to the fact that no Egyptian territory borders Russian territory, disputes are rare. However, due to Egypt's devotion to China, it will occasionally get caught between territorial conflicts between the Chinese and the Russians.
Relations improved during the reign of Pharaoh Psamtik XV and Tsar Peter VII. Both heads of state were vocal critics of nuclear weaponry, and called for disarmament. They both formed, and attended an international conference about nuclear disarmament, which was attended by several other nations. However, relations cooled again after their deaths.
Egypt and Norway share a cordial, warm relationship. They are active economic and military partners, with their alliance being described as one based on "ideals, and spirituality".
The Egyptians and the Norse were allies in the World War, and participated in joint assaults on Roman and Russian territory. Egypt also supplies Norway with many of its weapons.
As thing stand, relations between Egypt and Comancheria are mixed. Egypt was one of the first major powers to recognize the Comanche Empire, and it supported in territorial disputes with the Romans. However, the openly imperialistic, and expansionist policies of Comancheria have strained relations, with Egypt worried that it could lead them to all out conflict with Rome, or worse China, in which Egypt would have to get involved.
Relations cooled further, when the Comanche Grand Chief called for Egyptian aid in their war with the Aztecs. While Pharaoh Sesostris VI supported the Comanches, the Council of Commoners overruled the decision, and no assistance was given.
