Munir said such visits come to express Egypt's appreciation to its African neighbors and to bridge the gap of difference with the African states.

Munir underlined the importance of Sisi’s trips to Africa, saying that these visits played restored Egypt’s leading role in Africa and supported cooperation between Egypt and other African states in different issues. She added that President Sisi managed to strengthen political and economic partnership between Egypt and African states during the latest years.
