Egypt’s President to meet Clinton and Trump


Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is set to meet U.S Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday during the United Nations General Assembly , just as Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, is also scheduled to meet the Egyptian President as well reports Reuters.

Clinton announced last week that she was scheduled to meet the Egyptian President and Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko in bilateral meetings late Monday. Trump’s foreign policy advisor Walid Phares told Reuters that Trump will also be having talks with President Sisi on the very same day.

Some Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have since accused the Obama administration of abandoning its support of Egypt’s government in its battle against Islamic militants.
