Mon, Mar. 25, 2019
CAIRO – 25 March 2019: President of Bulgaria Rumen Radev arrived in Cairo on Monday to meet with a number of officials and diplomats to discuss the Egyptian-Bulgarian relations and ways to boost them.

A few days ago, Egypt’s President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi sent a cable of congratulations to Radv on the occasion of celebrating the country’s liberation day. Also, Hossam Zaatar, secretary of the Presidency, went to the Bulgarian Embassy as a representative of the president to congratulate the mission on the occasion.

Last November, Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shoukry visited the Bulgarian capital, Sofia, with the aim of consolidating bilateral relations and holding consultations on a number of regional and international issues of mutual concern, according to a statement issued by the state information service (SIS).

Shoukry stressed Egypt's keenness on enhancing relations with Bulgaria at all levels. The visit witnessed an agreement to form a joint committee under the foreign ministers of both countries.

During his meeting with Bulgarian President Radev, Shoukry praised the historical ties between Egypt and Bulgaria. Shoukry and Radev highlighted the importance of boosting joint economic cooperation in light of the trade exchange between both countries which exceeded €1 billion.

The two sides agreed on the need to activate the joint business council and bolster cooperation in the energy field as Egypt is poised to become a regional energy hub in the Middle East region.
