Prime Minister Narendra Modi held wide-ranging talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi on Wednesday, focusing on ways to strengthen bilateral ties in a number of areas, including agriculture, digital domain, culture and trade.

The 68-year-old influential Arab leader, who arrived here on Tuesday for a three-day visit, is the chief guest at the Republic Day celebrations. “Deepening our bond with Egypt – the natural bridge that connects Asia to Africa. Prime Minister @narendramodi and President @AlsisiOfficial are holding talks that will give impetus to the multifaceted India-Egypt relationship characterized by civilizational, cultural and economic ties and deep-rooted P2P ties,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said on Twitter.

The Egyptian President visited India in October 2015 to attend the Third Summit of the India-Africa Forum. This was followed by his state visit in September 2016.

This is the first time that the President of Egypt has been invited as the chief guest for the Republic Day celebrations in India. The military contingent of the Egyptian army will also take part in the Republic Day parade.

India is keen to further expand relations with Egypt, a key player in the politics of both the Arab world and Africa. It is also considered the main gateway to markets in Africa and Europe.
