El-Sisi tells the International Monetary Fund's Christine Lagarde he looks forward to cooperation in development efforts

International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde congratulated Egypt's president-elect Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi on Friday for his election win, and, according to El-Sisi's official Facebook page, heaped praise on the presidential poll.

El-Sisi responded by expressing his gratitude to Lagade and said Egypt is hoping for more cooperation with the IMF with regards to growth and development.

He said that he is looking forward to cooperating with different states and international organisations as partners in different sectors to "push forward the wheel of advancement and development and reflect on the Egyptian people's economic and social conditions.”

El-Sisi will be sworn in as Egypt's new president on Sunday after winning over 90 percent of votes cast in last week’s elections.
