Egypt sends 2 planes with medical aid to Djibouti - military spox
CAIRO – 28 May 2021: Two military aid planes took off from Eastern Cairo airbase, Friday, carrying large quantities of medical aid, heading to Djibouti.
The Djiboutian side expressed appreciation for the Egyptian efforts and its support for the people, helping them to face challenges.
The military spokesman said the aid was sent as per the directives of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.
Egypt also sent a shipment of medical supplies and food to Djibouti on Wednesday, the spokesman said.
El-Sisi and his Djiboutian counterpart, Ismaïl Omar Guelleh, held talks on Thursday as the former visited Djibouti.
The president stated he had carried out "fruitful and constructive consultations" with his counterpart.
The talks examined ways of bolstering and developing bilateral ties on the political, economic, security, and military levels.
That will be achieved by boosting trade exchange rates, and intensifying cooperation in the field of capacity-building through training courses offered by the Egyptian Agency of Partnership for Development (EAPD).
