President Abdel Fattah El Sisi participates in the 26th African Union (AU) Summit, which will be held on Saturday 30/1/2016 and Sunday 31/1/2016.
The summit will be held under the theme: "2016: African Year of Human Rights with a particular focus on the Rights of Women".
Sisi's participation in the upcoming African Summit comes as part of Egypt's keenness on activating its ties with the various African countries, promoting its participation in the joint African action and settling conflicts in the continent and enhancing social and economic development.
The Addis Ababa summit will tackle governance-related issues, elections and abiding by constitutional principles along with funding the AU.
Many African leaders will take part in the two-day summit which will be preceded by a meeting of the African foreign ministers.
President Sisi will hold several meetings with heads of African state with the aim of promoting bilateral ties with these countries in the various spheres.
The summit will tackle the reports of President Sisi in his capacity as coordinator of the Committee of African Heads of State and Government on Climate Change, mainly the outcome of the World Climate Change Summit held in Paris in December.
