CAIRO – 12 October 2021: Hungarian President János Áder received on Tuesday Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi at the presidential palace in Budapest, where official ceremonies were held in honor of the president.
During participating in the Visegrad Summit, Tuesday, in the Hungarian capital Budapest, Sisi stressed that Egypt is looking forward to more cooperation with the countries of Visegrad to exchange expertise and technology, localize industry, and cooperate in the fields of education and training.
He added that Egypt is achieving unprecedented growing rates in its modern history, taking into consideration the size of the accumulated challenges and the lack of resources.
According to Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady, President Sisi arrived in Budapest to attend the Visegrad Summit along with the leaders of Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia.
This is considered the sound time for Egypt’s President Sisi to take part in Visegrad gathering after 2017, which reflects the keenness of the two sides to develop relations between them and discuss various issues of common interest, Radi said.
Rady also stated that President Sisi’s visit to Budapest will also witness intensive bilateral talks with senior Hungarian officials, led by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Hungarian President Janos Ader, to discuss strengthening political and economic relations between the two countries, as well as cooperation and coordination at the international and regional levels.
in July 2017, President Sisi head to Budapest for the first time to participate in the summit.
The Visegrad Group – which groups Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic – was formed in 1991 with the aim of having member countries work together in a number of fields of common interest within the all-European integration.
Egypt was the first Middle East State and the third non-member State to be invited to participate in a Visegrad Group summit – after Japan and Germany.
