Population Minister Hala Youssef asserted that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s visit to Moscow was very important.
In a press release on Friday, the minister said Sisi’s visit underlines Egypt’s keenness on building bridges with international powers in order to reach solutions for problems facing Egypt, Arab nations and the Middle East.
Meanwhile, she added that the president supports the national strategy for population via boosting relations with countries contributing to the economic development.
Sisi returned home on Thursday after a three-day official visit to Moscow in which he held important talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and a number of officials and executives of major Russian companies to discuss means of promoting ties in the economic and energy domains.
Consultations were also held on terror combat and the situation in Syria, Libya, and Yemen.
