Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi on Sunday held talks in Cairo with the Director of the U.S Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), William Burns on ways to enhance security and intelligence cooperation between the two countries.
During the meeting, Sisi and Burns spoke on developments in a number of regional issues of common interest, especially with regard to the tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean.
They also spoke about the war in Afghanistan, the Palestinian crisis, the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, and the crisis in Libya.
Sisi stressed that Egypt attached great importance to strengthening the robust cooperation between the two countries in various fields, especially at the security and intelligence levels, in light of the spread of terrorism and extremism.
For his part, Burns emphasized his country’s keenness to continue coordination with Egypt to face various challenges.
The United States established diplomatic relations with Egypt in 1922, following its independence from protectorate status under the United Kingdom.
They both share a strong partnership based on mutual interest in Middle East peace and stability, economic opportunity, and regional security
