CAIRO - 18 January 2018: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn started Thursday their bilateral talks at Al-Ittihadia Presidential Palace.
During the meeting, Sisi and the Ethiopian prime minister are set to discuss the ways to promote the relations between the two states and the recent development in the African Horn.
Ethiopian Prime Minister Desalegn arrived in Cairo on Wednesday accompanied by a high-profile delegation to attend the sixth meeting of the joint Egyptian-Ethiopian Higher Committee. The last meeting was held three years ago and tackled bilateral cooperation in several fields, including education, health, agriculture and fisheries.
Desalegn’s three-day visit comes within the framework of the joint Egyptian-Ethiopian Committee, which was postponed several times since last December.
