CAIRO: Foreign Minister of Niger Aisha Bolama invited Wednesday President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi to attend the inauguration ceremony of President Mahamadou Issoufou Saturday, said   Egyptian Presidency in a statement.

President Sisi apologized that he would be unable to attend the ceremony due to his agenda, adding that he plans to visit Niger in the near future and will dispatch a high-profile delegation to attend the ceremony, the statement added. Sisi also sent his congratulations to President Issoufou for being re-elected for another term.

Bolama reportedly affirmed her country’s role in the international efforts to reach a settlement concerning Libyan turmoil.

In February, Issoufou was elected for a second five-year term.
