President Mohamed Morsi will make his first official visit to Beijing next week, China's foreign ministry has said. "This will be President Morsi's first visit to China since taking office, and China attaches great importance to it," foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said in a statement late Wednesday.

China and Egypt will sign cooperation agreements and discuss regional and international issues of mutual interest, Lei said, without giving details.

Trade between the two countries totaled $8.8 billion last year, up 40 per cent from 2008, according to the Egyptian Ministry of Commerce.

Morsi will attend the UN General Assembly session in New York on 23 September, and then visit senior US officials in Washington, Egyptian state media on Wednesday quoted his spokesperson as saying.
