Egypt FM in Washington to meet with Kerry, Congress members
Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry

CAIRO: Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry headed to Washington D.C. Sunday in a three-day visit to meet with senior U.S. officials to enhance “joint relations and coordination,” according to a statement by the ministry.

Shoukry will meet with Secretary of State John Kerry, members of Congress for the intelligence and military service, and national security advisor Susan Rice.

He will also be interviewed by NPR, the Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal.

The timing of the visit is important because it comes after the parliament of Egypt convened and while developments are occurring in Syria and Libya, spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry Ahmed Abou Zeid said.
