Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi stressed that his country was proud of the “close strategic partnership” it enjoys with the United States.
Egypt and his wide Entissar received in Cairo on Friday US First Lady Jill Biden, who arrived on a two-day visit.
While in Cairo, Biden will meet with women and youth, and highlight US investments aimed at supporting education initiatives and increasing economic opportunity, said the US embassy in Cairo.
Entissar welcomed Biden at the airport before they both headed to the presidential palace to meet with the president, who conveyed his greetings to his American counterpart.
Biden praised the warm reception she was accorded in Cairo. She later toured the al-Azhar Mosque.
She flew in from Jordan where she attended the wedding of Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah.
She is in the region on a weeklong tour that will take her to two more countries.
