Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune arrived in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, as part of a two-day official visit.
The Algerian head of state was welcomed at Cairo International Airport by his Egyptian counterpart, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, and senior Egyptian officials.
According to the Algerian media, the Algerian President was accompanied during this visit by a ministerial delegation made up of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ramtane Lamamra, the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Abdelbaki Benziane, the Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister in charge of the Knowledge Economy and Startups, Yacine El-Mahdi Oualid and the Minister of Culture and the Arts, Wafaa Chaalal.
The Algerian president will hold talks with Egyptian officials on ways of strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries, a statement expressed.
Algerian president Tebboune’s visit is the first by an Algerian president to Egypt since former President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s visit to Cairo in 2008.
El-Sisi made his first abroad visit to Algeria after being elected president in June 2014.
Egypt is considered the third Arab country Tebboune has visited since he was elected president in December 2019. Tebboune had visited Saudi Arabia in February 2020 and Tunisia last December.
