Egypt’s Chief of Staff meets Zambian Defense Minister

Tue, Nov. 14, 2017
CAIRO – 14 November 2017: Egyptian Chief of Staff Mohamed Farid Hegazy met with Zambian Defense Minister Davies Chama in Cairo on Tuesday in parallel to Zambian President Edgar Lungu’s three-day visit which is the first Zambian presidential visit to Egypt in seven years.

Lungu will discuss with President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi bilateral relations, as well as regional and global issues.

Zambian ambassador to Egypt Topply Lubaya told Lusaka Times on Sunday that Lungu will hold site visits to the Arab Manufacturing Authority, the Suez Canal Fisheries Establishment and the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZone).

It is also expected that a number of memoranda of understanding (MOUs) would be signed by both parties.

The last Zambian presidential visit to Egypt took place in December 2010 by former President Rupiah Banda who held talks with former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on ways to boost bilateral relations before the eruption of the January 25 Revolution.
