President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi was back home to Egypt late on Tuesday, after participating in the Berlin Summit on Libya, as well as the UK-Africa Investment summit in London, presidential spokesperson Ambassador Bassam Rady said on Wednesday.
During his tour, President El-Sisi took part in the Berlin summit which discussed the Libyan crisis.
From Cairo’s perspective, one of the Berlin conference’s successes is that it obviated Ankara’s bid to hijack the Libyan peace process. Cairo will now contribute to monitoring progress in implementing the Berlin agreement and will attend the follow-up committee that holds its first meeting in Geneva next week.
In London, President El-Sisi participated in the UK-Africa Investment Summit.
The summit was attended by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, some 53 heads of African state and government and heads of international organizations and major British and African businesses.
The President also held bilateral meetings with British Prime Minister Johnson as well as UK Prince William, as the head of the state stressed Egypt’s aspiration to strengthen bilateral relations with UK, particularly in the fields of tourism and education, as well as on the economic and commercial levels, by maximizing the volume of British investments in Egypt.
President El-Sisi expressed his appreciation for the warm welcome, praising the extended Egyptian-British cooperation.
In addition, the President said he was overwhelmed by the warm welcome Egyptian expats have shown during his participation in the UK-Africa Investment Summit.
