During his visit, Grandi will travel to the ​​Qastal-Ashkeer border crossing, according to a statment issued by UNHCR.

Moreover, he will also meet with the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, and Arab League (AL) Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit, and other ministers, as well as refugees who have recently arrived in Egypt.
