Egyptian President Abel Fattah El-Sisi received Monday, Polish President Andrey Duda in Cairo. Duda is in the North African country on a three-day state visit.
The Polish President, accompanied by First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda were received at the Egyptian Presidential palace on Monday.
Egyptian leader hailed the visit as being of particular significance, being the first presidential visit from the two sides in spite of the century-long diplomatic relations.
In a joint press briefing after their talks, President El-Sisi said discussions had covered the conflict in Ukraine, which he said casts a shadow over the entire global economy and threatens food security in various countries of the world.
“Egypt’s perspective was also reviewed as well as its position to address all means in founding calm, reaching a peaceful solution to the conflict and exerting all efforts to achieve this, whether on the bilateral, regional or international levels,” the Egyptian President spelled out.
“The importance of finding alternatives and solutions was emphasized in order to ensure that people circumvent the negative impact of the Russian-Ukrainian crisis.”
Russia launched its military operation in Ukraine on February 24. In spite of international outcry for an end to the conflict, the two sides continue to engage more than three months on.
Egypt is pushing for an Arab League initiative to create a ministerial communication committee to lead mediations between Russia and Ukraine.
At Monday’s joint presser, President El-Sisi noted that Poland’s view on the conflict was reviewed with regard to the causes of the crisis and means to overcome them.
The Egyptian President noted that President Duda’s visit marks the beginning of a new phase of cooperation and coordination between their two countries in order to further strengthen and deepen bilateral relations.
