President Trump, Sunday, said that he is planning a return trip to the Middle East with Egypt as a primary stop.
US President Donald Trump said on Sunday he hoped to visit Cairo soon, praising President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi after a meeting in Saudi Arabia and declaring that "safety seems to be very strong" in Egypt.
The bilateral relations between Egypt and USA worsened during Trump's predecessor Barrack Obama's administration after the Egyptian military ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi in 2013.
"We've really been through a lot together, positively", he said.
Sisi went to Washington last month for talks with Trump meant to improve relations that had been strained under President Barack Obama.
Trump smiled and said, "I agree", prompting laughter from those assembled.
Spurs loss at West Ham: Four key takeaways
In a quirk of the fixtures, Sunderland are set to play a big part in determining who goes down with them to the Championship. Spurs trailed 2-1 against the Hammers after 89 minutes at White Hart Lane earlier in the season, only to win 3-2.
El-Sisi is also scheduled to hold bilateral meetings with a number of leaders and officials who will be participating in the summits, in order to reinforce relations and discuss potential opportunities for cooperation at various levels, said the spokesman.
Trump is also calling Sisi his "friend" and praising him for the release of United States aid worker Aya Hijazi, who had been held captive for three years.
Sisi has been keen to have USA and European leaders visit the country, particularly after Egypt's short-lived isolation due to the 2013 military coup and reports of dire human rights abuses.
Trump thanked Sisi for his help with the release of Egyptian-American charity worker Aya Hijazi last month. Sisi went to Washington last month for talks with Trump meant to improve relations that had been strained under President Barack Obama.
The meeting symbolised Sisi coming in from the cold, after years of being kept at arm's length by Washington.
