    India, Egypt to discuss defence, trade and terrorism during Sisi visit

    India and Egypt are likely to enhance their strategic partnership through a series of agreements during Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s “historic” visit to Delhi next week to widen and deepen their bilateral relationship.

    Sisi will be the first Egyptian leader to be the chief guest at India’s Republic Day celebrations.

    The agreements would lay the groundwork for stronger cooperation between the two countries in a host of areas including security, defence, energy, trade, and investment.

    Besides, the two sides are also likely to discuss ways to increase cooperation in areas like agriculture, Information Communications Technology (ICT), pharmaceuticals, and counter-terrorism.

    Sisi has been to India twice before. But this visit is special as it can revive the strong ties the two countries once enjoyed.
