Cairo, 8 June 2014



His Majesty King Abdullah on Sunday attended the inauguration ceremony of Egypt’s elected President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi.

King Abdullah congratulated Sisi, who was sworn in on Sunday, on a landslide win in the recent elections, in which he claimed 96 per cent of the votes.

In a meeting following the ceremony, His Majesty and Sisi discussed ways to boost bilateral cooperation at all levels, stressing their commitment to furthering coordination to best serve the interests of the two countries and Arab issues.

The King underlined Jordan’s support to Egypt and the choice of its people, in addition to backing the country’s efforts in entrenching security and stability, while building on its achievements.

For his part, the Egyptian president expressed appreciation for Jordan on its stance towards Egypt, in particular His Majesty’s efforts to enhance joint Arab action.

The King, who returned home later in the day, also attended a lunch banquet held by Sisi in honour of leaders taking part in the inauguration ceremony.
