Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Burkina Faso's President Roch Marc Christian Kabore agreed during a Cairo meeting on Wednesday to boost trade and economic cooperation between the two countries.
El-Sisi said at a press conference after the meeting that the two countries will hold meetings of a bilateral committee aimed at boosting ties "at the earliest opportunity."
The Egyptian president said that Egypt looks to boost investments in Burkina Faso, mainly in energy, construction and infrastructure.
El-Sisi said the two leaders "exchanged views about political and regional security developments, including the situation in Libya… and developments in African countries."
The duo also agreed to bolster security and counterterrorism cooperation.
