Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry discussed on Saturday Egypt-US relations in a phone call with his newly appointed US counterpart Rex Tillerson, a ministry statement read.

Shoukry congratulated Tillerson on his appointment as US Secretary of State earlier this month, saying he looked forward to working with him to strengthen ties between the two countries, the statement added.

The foreign ministry said the coming days will see increased communication with the US, encompassing all aspects of the two countries' relationship.

In January, US President Donald Trump invited his Egyptian counterpart President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to visit the US. Trump previously told El-Sisi that his administration is committed to maintaining annual US military aid to Egypt.

Egypt receives $1.3 billion in military aid from the United States every year.
