President Sisi hailed the convocation of the 6th session of the joint Egyptian-Guinean committee from September 1-3 in Cairo and the signing of a number of agreements in the fields of electricity, water resources, maritime transport, environment and antiquities.
The president said that Egypt attaches great importance to efforts aiming at maintaining security, peace and stability in the African continent.

The meeting also took up Egypt’s main priorities for the sustainable development goals in Africa under President Sisi’s current chairmanship of the African Union (AU), especially those set forth in the AU Agenda 2063 and the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA).

These goals were floated during the sessions of the last G20 and TICAD summits in Japan and the G7 summit in France, Sisi said during his Tuesday meeting with Guinean Foreign Minister Mamadi Touré.

They also reviewed the latest developments at the African level.

For his part, Touré commended Egypt's support to his country in the fields of capacity-building and knowledge-transfer, voicing his satisfaction about the convocation of the 6th session of the joint Egyptian-Guinean committee from September 1-3 in Cairo, which testifies to both countries' willingness to push cooperation forward at various levels.
