US Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry in Cairo during a brief visit on Wednesday, the US State Department said on Monday.

During Kerry’s one-day visit, the officials will discuss bilateral ties and regional issues, department spokesperson John Kirby said in a statement.

Kerry will come to Cairo after concluding talks in New York with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad to discuss the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal as well as regional issues including ending Syria's civil war.

Kerry will then fly to Riyadh on Thursday to join President Obama at the Gulf Cooperation Council Summit.
