The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Minister Sameh Shoukry is heading to Washington, DC, on an official visit to discuss regional issues with his American counterpart Antony Blinken.

Shoukry is also scheduled to have meetings with a number of US Chamber of Commerce members and think tanks.

“This visit comes in the framework of intensifying communications and consultation between the two friendly countries as well as to boost all the aspects of the distinguished strategic relations between them and exchanging visions about the regional and international issues of common interest,” the foreign ministry said.

Shoukry’s last visit to Washington was in November 2021, for talks as part of the US-Egyptian Strategic dialogue.

The last meeting between Shoukry and Blinken was in late March on the sidelines of the Negev summit in Israel.
