Egypt's Sisi, meeting Jewish leaders, is optimistic on Israeli-Arab peace

Egypt's Sisi, meeting Jewish leaders, is optimistic on Israeli-Arab peace

Sisi's visit is the first visit by an Egyptian president to United States since 2009, when former president Hosni Mubarak had visited the country. Egypt is one of the very few Arab countries that do, indeed, have multiple dimensions-rather than the rule of one-dimensional lands characterized by simplistic economies, cultures, and capabilities.

"President Sisi and I discussed the progress of Egypt's economic reform program supported by the IMF's $12 billion Extended Fund Facility arrangement", the Wednesday statement says, adding that Egypt is now implementing a "strong economic reform program".

"President Trump expressed his deepest condolences to the victims and their loved ones, and to the Russian people", the White House said in a statement after the telephonic call between Trump and Putin.

"We recognise the sacrifices made and the difficulties faced by many Egyptian citizens, especially due to high inflation".

Despite the IS-claimed Russian plane crash in Egypt's Sinai that killed over 200 Russians in October 2015, strategic relations between Moscow and Cairo have not been affected.Egypt hosted in October 2016 its first joint paratroopers' military exercise with Russia dubbed "Friendship Protectors 2016".

President Sisi held important meetings with the chiefs of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund where the two international officials lauded the fearless economic decisions that have been recently adopted by the Egyptian government, he added.

He said he expects security cooperation between Cairo and Washington to increase in the coming period to put an end to this worldwide phenomenon.

In his White House appearance with Trump earlier in the week, Sisi was lavish with his praise.

On Wednesday, Minister of Investment and International Cooperation Sahar Nasr met in Washington with Dev Jagadesan, the CEO of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a United States government agency that helps USA companies invest in emerging markets.

She further revealed that a US business delegation will visit Egypt soon.

Speaking to reporters, Shott said the visit was a chance to cement relations and partnership between the two countries just as the USA president asserted. They also reportedly agreed on the importance of advancing peace throughout the Middle East, including in Libya, Syria, and Yemen, and expressed interest in supporting Israel and the Palestinians in moving toward peace, according to Reuters.
