Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi called his South African counterpart to congratulate him on his party's victory in last week's parliamentary elections, an Egyptian presidency spokesman said.

South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) party won the majority of parliamentary seats in a vote that will afford President Cyril Ramaphosa a mandate for a new five-year term.

During the phone conversation, the pair said they look foward to bolstering bilateral ties and strengthening cooperation between their countries, spokesman Bassam Rady said in a statement late Saturday.

El-Sisi said he is "looking forward to continuing to work with his brother, President Ramaphosa, to strengthen cooperation between the two countries, as well as to develop mutual coordination and consultation on various African issues of common concern."
