Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed bilateral ties and counterterrorism efforts with visiting Greek intelligence chief Yiannis Roubatis in Cairo on Thursday, El-Sisi's spokesman said.

The talks, also attended by chief of Egypt's General Intelligence Service Abbas Kamel, discussed ways to boost cooperation between the two countries in all fields, whether at the bilateral level or as part of the tripartite cooperation mechanism with Cyprus, spokesman Bassam Rady said in a statement published on Facebook.

The tripartite summit was first held in Cairo in 2014 with the aim of boosting cooperation between the three countries, with the most recent round of the summit held on the Greek island of Crete in October 2018.

The officials also addressed efforts to combat tourism and developments in the Middle East.
