Blinken also reaffirmed the US's commitment to its strong partnership with Egypt.

“Our more than 40-year strategic partnership continues to flourish to the benefit of the American and Egyptian people,”

He also expressed his pleasure with the recently held first-ever Joint Economic Commission between the US and Egypt in Cairo, explaining that it cemented further bilateral economic and commercial cooperation between the two sides.

Moreover, Blinken praised Egypt’s crucial role in promoting peace and security in the region and its leading role on a global level in climate change, including hosting the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) last November.

Egypt’s national day commemorates the anniversary of the 23 Revolution in 1952, which was a defining moment for the country that marked the end of the monarchy and the establishment of a republic.
