Egypt’s president leaves Cairo for Washington to meet Trump

Cairo, April 01: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi left Cairo for Washington today where both sides will seek a renewed relationship after tensions over Sisi’s crackdown on opponents.

Sisi will also see the top officials at the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, where he will pitch for help with his country’s ailing economy.

The trip will be Sisi’s first US state visit since being elected president in 2014 as former US President Barack Obama had never extended an invitation to him. Sisi was elected a year after leading the military’s ousting of the Muslim Brotherhood’s president Mohamed Mursi after mass protests.

A senior White house official said Trump wants to use President Sisi’s visit to reboot the bilateral relationship and build on the strong connection the two presidents established when they first met in New York last September.
