Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi arrived in Washington DC on Monday for the second time since he assumed office in 2014, and is set to meet US president Donald Trump the next day.

El-Sisi will meet Trump to discuss bilateral and regional issues, including the situation in Syria, Libya and Yemen, as well as counterterrorism efforts.

This will be El-Sisi's sixth meeting with Trump, which comes at the invitation of the US president.

A group of Egyptians living in the United States organised a rally in front of the US Capitol on Monday to welcome the Egyptian president.

According to the organisers of the rally, the Egyptian expats aim to show support for El-Sisi in the face of the Muslim Brotherhood's attempts to defame Egypt in front of the Congress.

El-Sisi left Cairo on Sunday on a tour that started with Guinea, the Ivory Coast, and Senegal, before heading to the US.
