Egypt: President Moncef Marzouki Receives Egypt's FM

Carthage — President Moncef Marzouki received, on Thursday, Egyptian Foreign Minister Kamel Amrou.

At the end of the meeting, the Egyptian FM highlighted solidity of the ties binding the two countries, adding that "these ties are, now, well above the simple historical and civilisational dimension, and they involve a joint destiny that hinges on the success of their revolutions and their transition process," reports a statement of the Presidency of the Republic.

"Only joint action in harmony with the requirements of the transition phase is able to guarantee success of our two countries' experiences through the establishment of real constitutional institutions and writing of a consensual constitution," he said.

The Egyptian FM also commended the level of the two countries' bilateral economic relations, reminding that the volume of trade exchanges increased by 20%, compared with the previous year.

In turn, President Marzouki renewed his invitation to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to the festivities marking the second anniversary of the January 14 Revolution.
