At a joint press conference after the meeting, Egypt's president said that the talks were fruitful, stressing the importance of strengthening bilateral relations and exerting more efforts to boost economic cooperation and increase bilateral trade.
El-Sisi also welcomed the arrival of Hungarian tourists as guests in Egypt.
"We agreed to further strengthen economic cooperation and take advantage of available areas of cooperation, including water treatment," the Hungarian president said.
"Those who have history can easily feel Egypt's deep-rooted history, and we enjoyed this atmosphere," Áder added, stressing that Illegal immigration and terrorism can't be tackled without Egypt.
Áder said that Egypt's success in fighting terrorism would be in Europe’s best interest, adding that immigration to Europe can't be stopped without Egypt's help.
He pointed out that his meeting with El-Sisi is the third one within two-and-a-half years which reflects the development of bilateral relations.
