Egypt attaches a special importance to promoting its relations with Nicaragua, whether at the bilateral level or within international forums by coordinating on matters of mutual concern, Shoukry stressed during the meeting.

Briefing Colindres on the country's economic reforms and other sustainable development efforts in various domains, Shoukry noted that he is looking forward to further cooperation between both countries.
