The EU Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos is set to visit Egypt on Tuesday, where he will meet with President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and Minister of Interior Mahmoud Tawfik.

Discussions will focus on cooperation on migration and security.

Commissioner Avramopoulos will also open the second round of the EU-Egypt Migration Dialogue to continue discussions initiated in December 2017 with the aim of further developing cooperation on migration between Egypt and the EU.

The European Commission issued a report last December on the cooperation between the EU and Egypt in the fields of socio-economic development, scientific research, energy, migration, countering terrorism and regional issues.

The report praised the steps taken by the Egyptian government to realize the goals set under the Partnership Priorities 2017-2020, adopted during the EU-Egypt Association Council in July 2017.
