CAIRO - 27 June 2018: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi held on Wednesday a meeting with former Cypriot foreign minister and Chairman for the Strategic Council of the EuroAfrica Interconnector Loannis Kasoulides.

They discussed means of boosting bilateral cooperation in the field of electricity interconnection, presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said.

During the meeting, the president hailed strategic relations between Egypt and Cypriot in all fields and praised the implementation of several electricity projects in Egypt, topped by the power stations recently established by the German Siemens company to add 14,000 megawatts to Egypt's national grid.

The recently-established power projects make Egypt qualified to serve as a power connection center between Africa and Europe through Cyprus and Greece, the president noted.

Kasoulides, meanwhile, reviewed his company's plans to implement a project of electric interconnection between Egypt, Cyprus and Greece.

This project will enhance Egypt's role as a regional energy hub in the Eastern Mediterranean, Kasoulides said.
