Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi met on Sunday with CEOs known to be members at the Federation at German Security and Defense Industries (BDSV), Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said.

The Egyptian President commended the development of cooperation between Egypt and the German firms which operate in military and security fields, a matter which has helped boost the technical and combat skills of the Egyptian Armed Forces.

El-Sisi cited Egypt's receival of the second Type-209/1400 submarine from Germany in August 2017 that aimed to strengthen the Egyptian navy's capabilities to secure the nation’s shores, Rady noted.

During the meeting, the president voiced Egypt's interest in enhancing cooperation with the German companies in this score to protect the Egyptian national security. The German CEOs praised bilateral cooperation and expressed keenness to further develop them at all levels in the coming period.
