Egypt’s El-Sissi to meet Trump in Washington in early April

 

CAIRO / AP

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sissi and US President Donald Trump will meet in Washington next month, Egypt’s leading state-owned newspaper said on Sunday.
Al-Ahram said in a front-page report the two leaders will meet during the first week of April, in what will be El-Sissi’s first visit to Washington since taking office in 2014.
El-Sissi and Trump have already shown a bond when they met in September on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. Trump, at the time the Republican presidential nominee, said there was “good chemistry” and El-Sissi, a general-turned-politician said Trump would “without a doubt” make a strong leader. Cairo and Washington are expected to forge closer ties under Trump following years of tension over the Obama administration’s emphasis on human rights and Cairo’s perception that it supported Muslim Brotherhood.
