Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi underlined on Sunday the special historical ties between Egypt and Armenia, especially at the popular level.

Egypt has along the history hosted tens of thousands of Armenians who contributed at the political, cultural, economic and artistic levels to enrich the Egyptian community's life, Sisi said.

Addressing a joint press conference with Armenian President Vahagn Khachaturyan, Sisi voiced happiness for being the first Egyptian president to visit the amazing city of Yerevan since the establishment of the diplomatic ties between the two countries about 30 years ago.

Sisi said the visit reflects Egypt's deep interest in developing ties with Armenia in various domains.

He thanked the Armenian president for the hospitality, noting that this amicable climate has positively affected the talks which focused on the leap in the field of energy production and the national strategy for green hydrogen production, thus becoming a promising investment destination in light of securing needed energy for industry.

Sisi voiced Egypt's appreciation to Armenia's participation in the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) which Egypt hosted in November 2022.
President Abdel Fattah El Sisi underlined the importance of joint work to boost trade exchange between Egypt and Armenia as well as the distinguished political ties.

He said this will require activating current economic cooperation mechanisms, topped by the joint committee for economic, scientific and technical cooperation as well as the business forum.

Sisi said he reviewed during the talks the efforts exerted by Egypt to remove obstacles facing foreign investors and the national projects being carried out in Egypt, especially in the Suez Canal Economic Zone.

He referred to the issuance of the golden investment license, underlining the leap witnessed by Egypt in the field of infrastructure and transportation.

The Armenian president said he discussed with President Sisi a number of political, security and regional issues as well as his country's efforts to establish peace and stability.

He referred to the role of the Armenian-Egyptian community in boosting relations between the two countries.

He expressed gratitude to the special care attached to Armenian nationals in Egypt, saying the Armenian people will never forget the welcome they received after surviving genocide back home.

Thanks to the strong friendship binding the two countries, Armenia will be able to overcome the current stage which is marred by many challenges and go for a flourishing future, he said.

He congratulated Sisi on the good organization of the UN Climate Change Conference and the positive results it come out with.
