President Abdel Fattah El Sisi phoned on Wednesday Djibouti President Ismail Omar Guelleh to express the Egyptian government and people’s solidarity with Djibouti in facing flash floods that have recently hit the country.
In statements, presidential spokesman Bassam Radi said that Sisi pledged Egypt’s support for Djibouti people during the current hard conditions, expressing Egypt’s readiness to dispatch medical and humanitarian aid to the flood-affected country.
Sisi also expressed Egypt’s appreciation of the historical and fraternal relations between the two countries, which are reflected in sharing identical views on Arab, African and international issues.
Sisi asserted Egypt's keenness on strengthening ties between the two countries, especially in trade and investment domains, in light of Egypt's view of Djibouti as a partner in the region, given its role in achieving economic development, security and stability in the Horn of Africa and the Red Sea area.
For his part, the Djibouti president lauded progress made in Egyptian-Djibouti ties, voicing his deep appreciation of the Egyptian leadership, government and people for their support to his country in its ordeal.
The two leaders also discussed the latest developments related to regional issues and the African Union’s files, particularly in light of Egypt’s presidency of the AU.
In this respect, Sisi asserted that the Egyptian presidency of the AU will benefit African countries in view of the political will and the clear vision adopted by Egypt in strengthening joint African action and achieving the development goals in all countries of the continent.
