Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is set to meet US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the 74th UN General Assembly in New York.

The meeting with El-Sisi is included in Trump's schedule, in which the US president will meet with world leaders to discuss a number of different issues, the New York Post reported.

El-Sisi held a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas ahead of the summit, and attended a tripartite summit with Jordan's King Abdullah II and Iraq's President Barham Salih. 

According to the New York Post, Trump will not join other leaders at the UN Climate Summit, and will hold a series of bilateral meetings with world leaders including President El-Sisi of Egypt, Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan, President Andrzej Duda of Poland, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, and President Moon Jae-in of South Korea.

Meanwhile, El-Sisi is expected to hold several meetings with international leaders and UN officials to discuss developing relations and issues of common interest.
