Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is in the US capital, Washington for a meeting with President Donald Trump.
He’ll be the first African leader to meet Mr. Trump as president.
Mr. Sisi was also the first African leader to speak to and congratulate Mr. Trump after his shock election victory.
The Palestinian-Israeli peace process is expected to be on the agenda, as is the fight against so-called Islamic State group, Reuters news agency reports.
The two leaders met last September in New York when Mr. Sisi was in the country to attend the annual UN general assembly.
