The pair also discussed cooperation in the fields of energy production from waste and extraction of shale oil.
They also discussed a number of regional and international issues of common concern and the challenges faced by African and European countries, especially the phenomenon of illegal immigration and terrorism, which require coordination and work between the two sides to reach effective solutions to these challenges through a common vision.
Kaljulaid, for her part, said her country seeks to boost cooperation with Egypt, in light of Cairo's great regional and African status, said Radi.
