The official spokesperson of the Egyptian Presidency stated that the leaders commenced their meeting by congratulating President El-Sisi on his recent swearing-in for a new presidential term, reflecting the Egyptian people's confidence in his leadership and the ongoing developmental trajectory of the state.

President El-Sisi warmly welcomed the distinguished guests from across the Arab world, highlighting the substantial responsibilities that lie on the shoulders of the Arab councils and parliaments in advancing the agenda of Arab integration. He emphasized the critical role of parliamentary diplomacy in advocating for just Arab causes in various regional and international forums and before global public opinion.

The discussions at the conference are expected to contribute significantly to the broader objectives of economic integration and diplomatic collaboration among Arab nations.

Egypt, under President El-Sisi’s leadership, continues to be at the forefront of these efforts, advocating for a cohesive and prosperous Arab world.

As the region faces various challenges, from economic pressures to geopolitical tensions, the unity and cooperation exhibited at such gatherings are more crucial than ever. The outcomes of this conference are likely to influence the future direction of inter-Arab relations and contribute to the stability and prosperity of the region.
