Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed means to enhance security cooperation to combat cross-border terrorism in Africa as he received Zambia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Joe Malanji on Saturday.

President El-Sisi and Mr. Malanji tackled the importance of exchanging information between their relevant institutions to eradicate cross-border terrorism within the framework of the continental efforts made in this regard, Egyptian Presidential Spokesman Bassam Radi said.

Mr. Malanji delivered a message to El-Sisi from President Edgar Lungu expressing Zambia’s desire to develop relations with Egypt, boost bilateral cooperation, especially in the fields of trade and the economy, and jointly work to confront African challenges.

President El-Sisi conveyed greetings to his Zambian counterpart and stressed the importance Egypt gives to means of enhancing relations with Zambia, especially in trade and investment, on the bilateral level and the level of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), as well as to enhance joint African work, to help achieve development and stability.

President Sisi asked Mr. Malanji to convey his greetings to his brother, President Lungu, stressing the importance that Egypt attaches to strengthening the relations that bind it to its sister Zambia in various fields, especially trade and investment, at the bilateral level or within the framework of COMESA.

“The president also pointed out to Egypt’s keenness to maximize coordination and consultation with the Zambian side, and President Lungu personally, regarding ways to enhance joint African action mechanisms, so as to contribute to achieving the growth and stability that African countries aspire to,” Rady added.

Rady revealed that “The Zambian foreign minister handed over a letter to President Sisi, written by President Lungu about some issues of bilateral relations,” adding: “The letter expressed the desire to develop those relations and advance the frameworks for joint cooperation between the two countries, especially in the economic and commercial fields.”

The Zambian Foreign Minister also expressed his country’s aspiration to work with Egypt to face the many challenges facing the continent, which require concerted African efforts to confront them.

The Spokesman added that the meeting witnessed a discussion of ways to enhance security cooperation and exchange of information between the relevant agencies of the two countries to combat the phenomenon of cross-border terrorism on the African continent, in complementarity with the relevant continental efforts.

Head of Egypt’s General Intelligence Service Abbas Kamel and Zambia’s ambassador in Cairo attended the meeting.

  1. Kwacha to a dollar K21, Inflation sprinting, unemployment jogging steadily, debt at stand still and nobody willing to help us, not even IMF. What did we do wrong to deserve this?

  2. MISSHANDLED, MISSUSED, MISSPLANNED,MISSPRIOTIZED, MISSCOMMUNICATED, MISSREPRESENTED, MISSINGAGED, MISSADMINISTERED, MISSCONDUCTED, MISSFRAMEMED, MISSCAULCULATED, MISSINTRODUCED, MISSTRANSFORMED, MISSUNDERSTOOD, MISSECONOMZED, MISSINDUSTRIALIZED, MISSLEAD AND MISSRULED ZAMBIANS FOR THE PAST SEVEN YEARS.
    SO KUYA BEBELE.
    ONLY A MAD PERSON WILL LINK PF TO GOOD LEADERSHIP.

  3. Let us be serious. Was this trip necessary? It is not even clear what the mission was. Waste of money.

    Egypt has many problems of their own, so do not expect them to lend us any money.

    Lungu is busy sending his cabinet abroad to beg for money, bringing more shame to our country.

  4. Really laughable….you think Egyptians will entertain you ..their construction companies want cash, Lazy Lungu is looking for a place to seek refuge in 2021. Someone tell him that Egypt is spoonfed by the US and they will not hesitant to hand you to Hague or back to Zambia.
