Egypt and Hungary are still talking regional issues

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi discussed bilateral relations, FDI and increasing trade between Egypt and Hungary with Hungarian PM Viktor Orbán at a meeting during Visegrád (V4) Group’s summit yesterday, according to an Ittihadiya statement. The meeting saw the two leaders discuss trade, cooperation to counter terrorism, illegal immigration, and regional and international security, with Orbán lauding Egypt’s peacekeeping efforts in the region. El Sisi reiterated the role of the international community in safeguarding Egypt’s water security in light of stalled negotiations over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. In a joint press conference (watch, runtime: 4:32), El Sisi thanked Orbán for his invitation to the V4 and for his continued support and confidence in Egypt — and extended an invitation to Orbán to the yet-to-be announced inauguration of the new administrative capital.
