Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi will meet his Guinean counterpart Alpha Conde in Cairo on Thursday for talks that will include the signing of a number of security and military deals between the two countries, the Guinean ambassador said.

Conde will be in Cairo for a two-day trip, his first visit to Egypt since he took office in 2010.

The two leaders will discuss "means to bolster ties between the two countries on all levels, as well as regional and international developments," Soriba Camara, Guinean envoy in Cairo, told Al-Ahram Daily.

During the visit, the two leaders are scheduled to sign a number of military and security deals as well as education and culture agreements, according to Camara.

Conde is also set to meet with a group of Egyptian businessmen to discuss ways to open trade and investment opportunities between the two countries.

In January, Conde was elected new chair of the 55-nation African Union, which is tasked with promoting unity and fostering cooperation between African countries.

Camara said the Guinean president aims to promote a new strategy that engages youth in development and promotes private sector investments in Africa.
