Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry headed for India on Wednesday to lead Egypt’s delegation in the seventh round of the joint committee between the two countries.

In an official statement, Egypt’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid said the joint committee will commence its meetings on Thursday, followed by ministerial level meetings on Friday.

The visit aims to address bilateral relations in all fields and means to develop them, in addition to regional and international issues of mutual interest, the spokesman said.

The visit comes within the framework of “historical relations between the two countries and Egypt’s keenness to develop cooperation with India in all areas,” which Abu Zeid said was reflected in a series of meetings between Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi since 2015.

Shoukry will meet with Indian PM Modi during his visit to deliver a message from President El-Sisi on means of reinforcing bilateral relations between the two countries.

He will also participate in the economic forum organized by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) in cooperation with the Egyptian Commercial Office in New Delhi.
