In his first visit to Cyprus, Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi signed a cooperation agreement with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, after discussing bilateral relations.

Anastasiades said the political momentum that would result from the visit would strengthen coordination between the two countries in international forums. This would work for the benefit of stability and security in the Middle East and the Mediterranean, according to a Wednesday Foreign Ministry statement.

Anastasiades also said that many businessmen from his country are paying special attention to investment in Egypt. Al-Sisi expressed Egypt’s aspiration to strengthening cooperation between the two countries in the field of energy, especially natural gas.

However, former assistant foreign minister Ibrahim Yousry criticised the move these words he doesn't understand the visit, nor the secret behind getting close with Cyprus

It is a meeting with thieves “who stole our gas”, he asserted, pointing out that Cyprus is bankrupt and one of the poorest countries in Europe.

According to Daily news Egypt, former assistant foreign minister Ibrahim Yousry declared that military men do not understand politics. He agreed that the visit might be a part of Egyptian stubbornness against Turkey, which is in conflict with both Cyprus and Egypt.

During the talks, Al-Sisi thanked the Cypriot president on his country’s support within the European Union (EU) for Egypt’s stances.
