Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed on Monday with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson ways to boost Egypt-UK relations, particularly in the economic, political, security and tourism fields.

In its statement on the meeting on the sidelines of the G7 summit in France's Biarritz, the Egyptian Presidency stated that PM Johnson expressed his appreciation of Egypt's participation in the G7 summit.

Johnson said his government was determined to strengthen relations with Egypt on multiple fronts, especially in the economic, development and social fields, the presidential statement said, adding that the British PM praised Egypt's economic advances and its efforts to promote peace, security and stability in the Middle East.

The statement added that El-Sisi and Johnson discussed the recent regional and international developments including the war on terrorism, a target El-Sisi said cannot be achieved without cutting terrorist organisations' financial funding and supporting the spread of moderate religious thought.

The Egyptian president and British prime minister also agreed on the importance of reaching full political resettlement in the troubled countries of the Middle East to lay the groundwork for peace in the region, the statement read.
