“This year represents the 115th anniversary of the two friendly countries of Egypt and Romania establishing diplomatic relations,” said El-Gebaly.

He added that it is a great honour for Egypt to have strong relations with Romania at all levels.

El-Gebaly stressed that “the two countries will work together to reinforce relations to serve the interests of both.”

Meanwhile, Romania’s president said his current visit to Egypt reflects the growing relations between Cairo and Bucharest.

“I am here in Cairo to push relations between our countries forward to cover all fields,” said Iohannis.

They also discussed fostering political and parliamentary relations between Egypt and Romania.

El-Gebaly and Iohannis also opened an exhibition that includes several historical documents that chronicle the relations between Egypt and Romania.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi had discussed in a meeting earlier Wednesday with his Romanian counterpart means of developing cooperation between both countries, particularly in the energy, investment, industry, trade, and tourism fields.
