Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is expected to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday in Berlin, the German deputy government spokesperson Ulrike Demmer said.

In a press conference on Friday, Demmer stated that the talks are set to tackle boosting bilateral ties and regional and international issues of common interest.

Demmer underlined that her country hopes that Cairo will support German-African relations during its presidency of the African Union in 2019. 

El-Sisi is set to also meet with German President Frank Walter Steinmeier and Speaker of Bundestag Wolfgang Schäuble.

He will also take part in the G20 Compact with Africa (CwA).
