Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi met on Tuesday with Zambian President Edgar Lungu at El-Ittihadiya palace in Cairo, where the two leaders signed a number of MoU's on cooperation in tourism, health, youth and medicine. 

The Egyptian president expressed to Lungo his happiness with the level of cooperation between Egypt and Zambia in light of growing businesses by Egyptian companies in electricity and communication in Zambia. 

El-Sisi said that Egypt is keen on further facilitating and enhancing economic and trade relations with Zambia.

Lungu said that he appreciates Egyptian efforts to maintain peace and stability in Africa and the Middle East. 

Before the meeting, the Egyptian army's Chief-of-Staff Mohamed Farid Hegazi met with his Zambian counterpart Paul Mihova in Cairo to discuss bilateral issues and military cooperation.

The two officials discussed means of boosting security and military collaboration and the exchange of experience and training.

The last Zambian presidential visit to Egypt took place in December 2010 by former President Rupiah Banda, where he met with then-President Hosni Mubarak.

Egypt and Zambia are members of the 19-state Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).
