He said: “When I study physics, I feel that this is the thing I love the most, but I discover the same psychological closeness when a book about chemistry, surgery, history, literature and so on is being carried by me.” He also loves to watch documentaries and science movies.

He is interested in knowing global, regional and local historical events, and as he said: The human instinct that has been fixed in man throughout the ages was the first leader that was leading man's behavior and path and thus making his history; Because of the constancy of these innate elements, we find history repeated and repeating itself. Hence, knowing the historical tracks through different ages and eras helps us discover these innate human constants; if this is discovered and known with knowledge of historical processes and their dynamism; this qualifies us to look at the present and the future with an objective analytical view that may sometimes be fateful for peoples, if one is in the decision-making places, and it is also an essential element in choosing a sound educational and intellectual method from which the present generation draws to make a present with its sound rules, which qualifies the future generation to be able to advance and discover their capabilities and benefit from them effectively and correctly.

Brief Overview of his Cultural Activities:

Dr. Khaled Nashwan began writing poetry in the Hungarian Language at the end of his first academic year in Hungary, and his works began to appear in Hungarian newspapers in the second academic year at the Faculty of Medicine.

Alexandra House for Publishing and Distribution issued his first literary book entitled "I Came from the Land of the Queen of Sheba" in 2001, which contained poetry, wisdom, prose and short stories. With this book, he was awarded the Hungarian Literature Award for the year 2001 by the General Federation of Hungarian Federations.

Dr. Khaled Nashwan is considered the first foreigner in the history of Hungary to publish a literary book written in the Hungarian Language. His book, mentioned above, received great attention in the cultural and media circles, especially when his Yemeni nationality was mentioned, which was mentioned in every news published about him or an interview with him.

His keenness to preserve the singularity of Yemeni Nationality was of strategic importance in his mind; That success should go to his country and to the Arab and Islamic nation as well, especially after the 9/11 events in the United States of America, which resulted in a fierce media campaign that sought to marginalize and distort the Arab and Islamic civilization and put it in the dock, and to attempt to belittle the Arab and Islamic personality and its role in the path of human and cultural renaissance.

The writings of Dr. Khaled Nashwan call for moderation in everything, and for peace, and call for noble morals, and thus he was able to represent his homeland and Islamic civilization through his thought and behavior.

Dr. Khaled Nashwan is considered the founder and president of the (Saba) Foundation for Civilizations and Talents, which aims to promote tourism to the Arab world, and one of its goals is to introduce the Western world to the ancient Arab and Islamic civilization that was the cradle of civilizations. Under his supervision and assistance through the “Saba” Foundation, which he founded and in cooperation with Alexandra Publishing and Distribution in Hungary, which is the largest publishing house in Hungary, (8) books have been published about eight Arab countries, including: Yemen, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, and Tunisia, in addition to a book about Libya and another about Algeria that is in print.

His news covered a lot of visual, print and audio media at the local and international levels alike, and the name of Dr. Khaled Nashwan was accompanied by the reputation of his Arab and Islamic nation, and in the first place his country, Yemen.

He participated in many scientific, cultural and social conferences, and many figures spoke and wrote about him.

The Hungarian poet and journalist “Rozvan Georg” wrote many poems about him. He is a well-known poet and writer in Hungarian circles, and he has published more than twenty books and divans.

"Rozvan George" published a divan he wrote about Dr. Khaled Nashwan in 2003, under the title "Prince Khaled and the Queen of Sheba and Tales of a Thousand and Two Nights"; Where he said in the introduction: "When there is an amazing country like Yemen, and when there is a book for her son that stirs up the obsession of writing, this is how these poems and stories were born. The book “I Came from the Land of the Queen of Sheba” by Prince Dr. Khaled Nashwan motivated and moved me towards writing this book."

The main wish of Dr. Khaled Nashwan was to see his homeland and his nation among the ranks of developed countries in all areas of life.

Many Yemeni, Arab, and European channels conducted many interviews and documentaries with him, and links to them are available on the Doctor's website.
