Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is scheduled to meet on Monday with German Parliamentarian Volker Kauder, as Egypt and Germany take steps to strengthen their ties.

The Egyptian president will hold talks with the leader of the parliamentary block of the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU), at the Ittihadiya presidential palace, a presidency statement read.

Last year, Kauder hailed the election of El-Sisi on his own personal website, describing it as a “chance for greater stability and better future.”

The German politician also said Egypt needs social reconciliation, job creation and coexistence between Egypt’s Muslim majority and Christian minority.

Egypt and Germany appear to take steps to strengthen their relationship as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is also the CDU leader, has invited El-Sisi in mid-March to visit Germany following the completion of Egypt's delayed parliamentary elections.

Merekel’s invitation came after Egypt announced a $10.5 billion deal with German industrial giant Siemens to build power plants that will boost the country's electricity generation capacity by up to a third. The deal was announced in mid-March in Egypt’s Economic Development Summit.

In the aftermath of the ousting of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013, Germany has expressed concerns regarding some of Egypt’s domestic policies.

In April 2014, Germany summoned Egyptian ambassador to protest against the mass death sentences handed to members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

"The hundreds of death sentences make a mockery of what we understand to be democratic principles," Foreign Minster Frank-Walter Steinmeier said in a statement at the time.

Social Reconciliation??
I'm no longer flabbergasted when Zionist controlled western politicians hint at their fallen dream to bring back the MB disease in Egypt. One western country after another sing the same despicable tune. Why do they support that cancer so much is a question that should be of grave concern to their own people. Yes he has a website praising President El-Sisi and the Egyptians but at the same time meddling in Egyptian affairs let alone asking for SOCIAL RECONCILIATION??? Reconcile with whom exactly? During Germany's wars has Egypt ever hinted at Germany reconciling with Hitler in addition to Egypt wanting to see Germany reform their country with Christians and Jews??? You the EU/US/NATO are a sheep in wolves clothing. You can fool your own citizens but you can't fool an Egyptian regarding your motives.
