 President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi met on Monday Speaker of the Cypriot parliament Demetris Syllouris.

Welcoming the speaker, El-Sisi underscored the deeply rooted ties between both friendly nations, asserting Egypt's keenness to bolster these ties at various levels, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Radi said.

El-Sisi also commended constant coordination and consultation with President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades to explore means of furthering bilateral as well as trilateral cooperation among Egypt, Cyprus and Greece, which sets a model for constructive cooperation across the Eastern Mediterranean.

Syllouris conveyed the Cypriot president's greetings to President Sisi, voicing pleasure for his current visit to Cairo at the invitation of House Speaker Ali Abdel Aal.

Hailing the recent development in the bilateral ties, Syllouris also stressed his country's commitment to fostering them.

The meeting took up aspects of cooperation as well as the results of first-ever formal meeting between the parliament speakers of Cyprus, Greece and Egypt, which took place in Cyprus in February with a view to deepening trilateral relations, the spokesman added.

The two sides also exchanged views on the latest developments on several regional issues.

House Speaker Ali Abdel-Aal attended the meeting.
