Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and his Chadian counterpart Idriss Deby have agreed to bolster mutual ties and regional cooperation between both countries, a Saturday statement from the former's office said.

El-Sisi spoke with Deby on the phone during which the Egyptian leader congratulated the latter on being re-elected in an April landslide victory in elections.

El-Sisi stressed during the call the need to strengthen ties between the two African countries in all fields, the president's office said.

"Both leaders agreed during the call on the importance to reinforce bilateral ties and regional cooperation," the statement added.

Deby is the chairman of the African Union, of which Egypt is a member.
