All the French agencies are largely preparing for French President Emmanuel Macron’s visit to Egypt by the beginning of 2019, French Ambassador Stephane Roumtier said in a statement on Nov. 19.
The visit will include holding discussions on the economic affairs, the possibility of having new investments, and will tackle international and regional affairs, Roumtier declared during his participation in Egypt-France Health Forum.
Moreover, the French ambassador denied any sort of competition between France and Italy regarding the Libyan crisis, stressing the importance of Egypt’s role in unifying the Libyan Army, supporting the Libyan presidential election and drafting a new constitution.
“France has a lot to give to Egypt in the healthcare and treatment sector and we are ready to receive new missions to train them and raise their qualifications,” Roumtier affirmed.
He added that: “France and Egypt have the political will to improve the bilateral relations, which fulfills the mutual interests of the two countries.”
In October 2017, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi visited Paris and discussed with Macron joint efforts to combat terrorism, the Middle East peace process and the situation in Libya.
