United States President Donald Trump has promised the Egyptian President, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi that he will soon be visiting Egypt. “We will absolutely be putting that on the list very soon,” Trump said at the beginning of bilateral talks with Sisi.
The two head of state held talks in the Saudi capital on Sunday on the sidelines of the Arab Islamic American Summit in Saudia.
The United States head of state praised US relations with Egypt, describing the talks with Sisi as “very very important”.
“We’ve really been through a lot together positively,” he said.
Trump said that “safety seems to be very strong” in Egypt, which has seen deadly bombings and attacks on Christian Copts and security forces in past months.
Sisi assured Trump that Egypt was secure and that his government was doing all it can to ensure that its citizens and those from foreign countries are secure. “Egypt is secure and stable and is going very well with the cooperation of the United States”, he said through an interpreter.
The Egyptian president praised President Donald Trump, saying that he had a unique personality and he was sure he will succeed as the US president.
“You are a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible,” Sisi said, addressing Trump.
“I agree!,” The billionaire US president responded amid laughter from those present.
