CAIRO – 14 September 2022: Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al Sisi said his visit to Qatar reflects the development witnessed in the two countries' relations over the past period and the sincere desire by their leaderships to deepen cooperation to serve their national interests.

He added In an interview with Qatar News Agency that the visit also mirrors the two countries' true desire to boost inter-Arab solidarity and activate joint Arab action to preserve regional security and stability at the current stage.

He stressed that economic and investment cooperation between Egypt and Qatar is one of the most promising areas of joint interaction, saying this topic was discussed in detail over the past year between senior Egyptian and Qatari officials in light of the variety of available investment opportunities in Egypt.

Sisi hoped that the ideas and initiatives that were floated lately would turn into joint investment projects in the natural gas and renewable energy domains as well as the green hydrogen and petrochemical industries and lead to a closer cooperation between Egypt's sovereign fund and its Qatari counterpart.

He praised the role of Qatar and the way it handled a number of regional political files and the good results it achieved in this regard, citing the recent Qatari mediation to back the national dialogue between the Chadian transitional regime and armed opposition groups. Egypt supports such kind of efforts and looks forward to cooperating with the Qatari side to achieve stability, development and security in the African continent.
