President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi received a phone call from Prime Minister of Belgium, Alexander De Croo.


Spokesman for the Presidency, Counselor Dr. Ahmed Fahmy, said the call touched on the outstanding bilateral relations between the two countries as well as Egypt’s ties with the European Union, in light of Belgium’s assumption of the EU’s rotating presidency last January. The two sides confirmed that they look forward to forging closer joint cooperation in various domains and to further strengthening coordination and consultations on international and regional challenges.


President El-Sisi and Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo also discussed regional developments, notably the situation in the Gaza Strip. President El-Sisi reviewed Egypt’s efforts to achieve a ceasefire, exchange detainees and hostages, and ensure the flow of humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza in a sustainable and urgent manner.


President El-Sisi appreciated Belgium’s position in support of restoring calm and its rejection of the ongoing escalation. The Belgian Prime Minister affirmed his country’s alignment with Egypt’s vision and its readiness to support all efforts undertaken by Egypt within this framework, particularly with regard to ways to activate the two-state solution and establish an independent Palestinian state. He stressed his country’s keenness on furthering coordination and consultations with Egypt to prevent the expansion of the scope of the conflict and restore stability in the region.
