Sisi: boosting national institutions helps preserve unity of unrest-hit states

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi stressed on Monday that backing national institutions would certainly help preserve the unity of unrest-hit countries and end sufferings of peoples.

The president lauded strategic relations binding Egypt with the US and the positive development of relations between the two countries under Trump administration.

He said Egypt is keen on developing relations with the US in all domains and maintaining coordination on ways of achieving peace and stability in the Middle East.

Trump expressed appreciation for the security, stability and development Egypt achieved under the leadership of Sisi despite volatile regional developments and challenges.

He said the US is looking forward to developing cooperation with Egypt at all levels, referring to Egypt’s success in carrying out economic reforms and boosting the overall development process.

He said the US is keen on increasing trade exchange with Egypt and joint investments.
