WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The two leaders are expected to discuss multiple bilateral issues, including the fight against Daesh (a terror group outlawed in Russia), the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and expanding economic relations, according to the White House.
The Trump administration plans to continue providing military and economic support to Egypt as happened under previous administrations, a senior White House official noted.
Moreover, Trump wants to reboot the bilateral relationship between the United States and Egypt during the Sisi’s upcoming visit, the official noted.
"He [Trump] wants to use President Sisi’s visit to reboot the bilateral relationship and build on the strong connection the two president’s established when they first met in New York last September," the official stated.
Although the White House hopes to increase the economic and commercial ties between US and Egypt, security will remain the key element of the bilateral relationship.
