A delegation of the Evangelical Church left Cairo heading to the US Thursday to support Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi during his visit to the United Nations headquarters to attend next week's UN General Assembly.

In an official statement reported by the state-owned MENA news agency, the Church said that delegation’s visit, that comes in coordination with Evangelical churches in the US, is an expression of support for the Egyptian state from the Church.

The Church added that it coordinated the visit following talks with senior Egyptian Evangelical Church officials in the US to “support Egypt at such a critical stage in the history of the region.” Church officials in the US called on supporting Egypt, the Egyptian president, the Egyptian economy, and for the world to visit Egypt.

The Church asked that next Sunday be devoted to prayer for the “success of the visit” and supporting Egypt in all fields.

El-Sisi is set to attend the UN General Assembly next week, as well as the UN Security Council summit on Syria on 21 September, a meeting on immigrants and asylum seekers, and an African leaders’ meeting on fighting climate change.
