The Foreign Ministry said that Cairo would see intensive visits in the coming period from a number of Congressmen as a show of the US government's keenness on good relations with Egypt.
Ministry spokesperson Badr Abdel Atty said a delegation headed by Robert Karem, senior adviser to the Foreign Affairs Office of the US House of Representatives, is coming to assess the progress of the road map and relay the truth to Congress so as to make the appropriate decisions concerning Egypt. The delegation will also include the senior aide to the Subcommittee on Foreign Operations and Col. Daniel Greenwood of the U.S. marines.
The delegation met on Wednesday afternoon with Assistant Foreign Minister for U.S. Affairs Farid Mounib and discussed Egyptian-US relations and the situation in the Middle East as a whole.
Atty also said another delegation from the Senate will be paying a periodical visit to Egypt later this month to meet with multinational forces in Sinai.
“The visits are in light of Egypt being the largest regional state and the element of stability in the Middle East,” he said.
