CAIRO - 11 October 2017: In an exclusive interview with Egypt Ambassador to Washington, Ambassador Yasser Reda, during the celebration of October 6 victory, he said: "Egypt is a pivotal and major country in the Middle East and does not seek assistance from anyone."
Reda confirmed that the meeting between President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and US President Donald Trump in New York City was constructive, and that there is a continual intercommunication with the American party on partially resuming military aid, some of which has already been reduced.
Reda noted circulating news of a weapons deal between Egypt and North Korea, stating, "there is no ground for the recent allegations of the Washington Post news for a military deal between North Korea and Egypt."
Reza also stressed that President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has a vision for the future, and has achieved much in the internal affairs of Egypt and the Arab region, starting from the increasing volume of trade exchange between Egypt and America amounting to about $6 billion last year, and ending with the latest Palestinian reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas.
