Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi met on Tuesday in Cairo with Greek foreign minister Nikos Kotzias to discuss boosting bilateral relations, regional and international issues, as well as enhancing cooperation between Egypt, Greece and Cyprus, especially in the field of energy in the eastern Mediterranean.

Egypt's presidential spokesperson Bassam Rady said that El-Sisi expressed appreciation for Greece’s support of Egypt and its people in the wake of 30 June revolution, praising bilateral relations between the two countries within the framework of the tripartite cooperation mechanism with Cyprus.
