Shortly afterwards, in a post on her Facebook page, Mrs El-Sisi wrote: “I was happy to meet Mrs Jill Biden during her visit to her second home in Egypt."

US First Lady Jill Biden had arrived in Cairo on Friday on a short visit to Egypt as part of a week-long trip to the region, which began with her attending Jordanian Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah wedding in Amman on Thursday.
