The president also congratulated the British premier on the approach of Christmas.

During the phone call, El-Sisi lauded the positive development in Cairo-London relations, especially after the British government’s recent decision to resume direct flights to Sharm El-Sheikh airport, and that Egypt is looking forward to increased cooperation in various fields, in particular on the economic, political, security and tourism levels.
