President of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Sam Kutesa expressed appreciation of Egypt's active and supportive role under the UN umbrella as well as its regional and international efforts.
Speaking to the Middle East News Agency correspondent here, Kutesa described the talks he had with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry in New York as "fruitful and very important", saying they come after the ones he had during a Cairo visit in March with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
The meeting with Shoukry took up a number of files of common interest and finding solutions to the situation in Libya and Yemen in addition to water security.
The UNGA chief, also the foreign minister of Uganda, hailed the level of ties between Egypt and Uganda.
