The two Heads of State also held fruitful discussions on a broad range of issues bordering on bilateral and multilateral cooperation at the Ittihadiya Presidential Palace, Bayraytay told me at the Presidential Lounge of the Cairo International Airport shortly before they left.

He further says they focused on cooperation in health, education, maritime resources as well as security issues.
