President Sisi expressed his greetings to the South Sudanese president and asked the envoy to convey them, asserting the strong relations binding the two countries, according to the spokesman.

He quoted Sisi as saying that Egypt will continue to boost bilateral cooperation and offer aid and technical support to South Sudan to push forward development and meet the aspirations of its people for a better future.
