President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi's Visit to the UK

Tuesday، 03 November 2015 - 12:00 AM

4 – 6 November, 2015

President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi embarks on a visit to the UK, from 4 to 6 November, 2015, where he is expected to meet British Prime Minister David Cameron, top British MPs and CEOs.

The visit is intended to consolidate counter-terrorism cooperation between the two countries, and to increase British investments in Egypt. Britain has expressed a willingness to support Egypt's economy. The two sides will thus be discussing ways of multiplying Egyptian exports to Britain, now calculated at £860 million as against £1 billion in imports from the UK.

To be discussed also will be the conditions in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya and ways of activating peace efforts as regards the Palestinian question.

British media outlets were keen to interview President Sisi before heading to London. These include the Daily Telegraph and the BBC.

The interviews covered ways of developing relations between Egypt and the UK, especially in the economic fields, and with regards to investing in Egypt's mega projects. The President highlighted the changes, which took place over the past four years in order to protect the tolerant nature of the Egyptian people, who have always rejected terrorism, extremism and violence.

In his interviews, the President also dealt with the democratic transformation process, currently taking place and seeking to achieve the Egyptian people's aspirations with regards to economic progress, social justice and promoting human rights.

The President responded to questions on regional developments and on fighting terrorism as perceived by Egypt.
