Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry has become the first Arab official to meet with United States Vice President-elect Mike Pence since Donald J. Trump won the US presidential elections, announced the Egyptian Foreign Ministry.

The meeting, held on Wednesday, saw Shoukry deliver a message from President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi to President-elect Trump.

According to the Foreign Ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid, Sisi stressed his support for strengthening Egyptian-US relations in the message delivered by Shoukry. Sisi added that the US can continue to relyo n Egypt as a key partner to restore stability to the region and combat terrorism.

Meanwhile, the US Vice President-elect stressed his country’s support for Egypt, adding that he was looking forward to boosting cooperation between Cairo and Washington D.C., said spokesperson Abu Zeid.

Egypt’s President Sisi, who was one of a few world dignitaries Trump requested to meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly earlier this year, was the first world leader to call Trump to congratulate him on his victory.

Shoukry is currently in the United States for talks with current and future U.S. officials. According to Abu Zeid, Shoukry is set to hold meetings with members of congress and will be interviewed by several American media outlets.
