Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry received on Sunday a delegation from parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee ahead of its upcoming visit to the United States within the next few days.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid said the meeting involved a discussion of US-Egyptian relations and ways of developing ties with the US in all fields.

Shoukry said that the delegation's trip to the US is of particular importance given the developments at last month’s Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh.

The delegation will brief American officials on the domestic developments in Egypt, Cairo's stance on regional and international issues of common interest, as well as counterterrorism efforts.

In May, during the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi said that eradicating terrorism means putting an end to its sources of financial and ideological support.

El-Sisi said that tackling terrorism thoroughly means confronting "countries that supply, train, arm and provide political and ideological cover to terrorists."
