President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi held a telephone conversation with Zambian President Edgar Lungo on Thursday.
Ambassador Bassam Rady، Spokesman for the Presidency of the Republic، said that the communication dealt with the development of a number of regional issues and files related to the African Union (AU). President Al Sisi stressed the special importance of consultation with the Zambian President Lungo. He praised the active role of Zambia in the Southern African region and at the continental level. It is worth to mention that both Egypt and Zambia enjoy distinguished bilateral relations for decades. Egypt supported Zambia to become an independent state after decades of the British hegemony.
