On Wednesday, Former Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, and head of the Egyptian-Armenian friendship group in the Armenian parliament Aghvan Vardanyan welcomed the Egyptian president's visit to Armenia.
"Armenian-Egyptian relations have been formed since ancient times and are of exceptional importance for our peoples," Vardanyan noted.
He stated that during the Armenian Genocide, the Egyptians played an irreplaceable role in providing shelter to hundreds of thousands of Armenian refugees and saving their lives.
"Even today, the Armenian community of Egypt has its special place in the life of that country," he added.
According to Vardanyan, in recent times, Armenian-Egyptian ties continue to develop and strengthen, "more than 50 documents related to bilateral cooperation in many fields have been signed between Armenia and Egypt."
"It is no coincidence that the first embassy of Egypt in Transcaucasia was established in Armenia."
"We are sure that the strong presence of Armenia in the region also stems from the interests of the Arab Republic of Egypt," he stressed.
As part of his regional visit, the Egyptian president is now in India and will also visit Azerbaijan.
Within the framework of his visit to Armenia, el-Sisi is scheduled to meet with Armenian President Vahagn Khachatryan.
The Armenian President's visit to Egypt last November also contributed to this visit.
Egypt's President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi will arrive in Armenia on a regional visit in the coming days.
This statement came by Aghasi Margaryan, the head of the Public Relations Department of the Presidential Administration, told Armenpress.
"In the coming days, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi will pay a regional visit to Armenia," Margaryan said.
