Published in Ahram Online on 17 - 06 - 2019

Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi met on Monday in Minsk with Belarusian Prime Minister Sergei Rumas on means of fighting terrorism and eradicating extremist thought.
El-Sisi hailed the deeply-rooted relations between Egypt and Belarus, and reviewed the efforts exerted by Cairo on the international level to wipe out terrorism, presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said.
The Egyptian president also lauded the level of economic cooperation between the two countries, saying that there is great potential for Belarusian investments in Egypt.
El-Sisi also asserted that it is crucial to continue intelligence coordination between the two countries to face common challenges.
Egypt is keen on deepening its relations with Belarus in different fields, particularly in trade and the economy, El-Sisi said.
The Belarusian PM hailed Egypt's economic reform programme and its ongoing mega projects.
Earlier on Monday, El-Sisi met with a number of Belarusian businessmen.
"Egypt has become an important economic partner of Belarus in Africa," El-Sisi said, inviting the Belarusian businessmen to pump investments in Egypt in the fields of agricultural machinery, information technology and tourism.
The spokesman added that Belarusian companies expressed their eagerness to expand their business in Egypt, which plays a vital role in maintaining stability in the Middle East and Africa, particularly in the field of countering illegal migration and promoting co-existence among peoples.
President El-Sisi is on a European tour that includes Belarus and Romania.
El-Sisi is scheduled with Belarus President Aleksander Lukashenko to discuss boosting bilateral ties.
El-Sisi will also meet with the heads of the House of Representatives and the National Assembly, the spokesman added. The two sides will discuss their views on a host of other regional and international political issues, with a focus on the fight against terrorism and extremist ideology.
In Minsk, the president is scheduled to sign a number of bilateral cooperation agreements, the spokesman said.
