On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi had extensive discussions on how to improve bilateral ties in a variety of sectors, including commerce, culture, and agriculture.
The 68-year-old powerful Arab leader is the featured guest at the Republic Day festivities. He landed here on Tuesday for a three-day visit.
"strengthening our ties to Egypt, the land that naturally links Asia and Africa. Talks between Prime Minister @narendramodi and President @AlsisiOfficial give the multifaceted relations between Egypt and India, marked by connections across civilisations, cultures, and economies, as well as enduring P2P ties, more momentum "Arindam Bagchi, a spokesman for the ministry of external affairs, tweeted.
In October 2015, the president of Egypt traveled to India to take part in the third summit of the India-Africa Forum. His state visit occurred in September 2016 after that.
The Egyptian President was not previously asked to attend India's Republic Day festivities as the primary guest. The Republic Day parade will also include a military presence from the Egyptian Army.
India is eager to deepen its relations with Egypt, a significant participant in the politics of both the Arab and African worlds. It is regarded as a significant entry point to the markets of Africa and Europe.
