CAIRO – 25 February 2021: Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry on Thursday expressed to his Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba, the keenness to continue cooperation with Ukraine in transferring technology and boosting Ukrainian investments in Egypt.
In a phone call, Shoukry affirmed Egypt’s willingness to continue developing and deepening the cooperation with Ukraine in political, economic, and agricultural fields as well as trade.
The two ministers highlighted the importance of discussing the means of benefiting from the two countries’ experience in combating the coronavirus pandemic and easing its social and economic implications.
The ministers have expressed satisfaction of the level of ongoing coordination between Egypt and Ukraine and said they look forward to holding the next session of bilateral consultations during this year.
Shoukry hailed the ongoing flow of Ukrainian tourists to Egypt, causing Ukraine to rank 1st in Egypt’s tourism record in 2020 in terms of the number of tourists.
This comes in light of the strict precautionary measures Egypt takes against coronavirus, in light of Ukraine’s decision to resume charter flights to South Sinai and the Red Sea governorates in Egypt.
