Shafaq News/ The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Friday that Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Al-Miqdad is scheduled to visit Cairo on Saturday.
According to an official statement from the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, Al-Miqdad will hold talks with Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry at the ministry's headquarters in Cairo.
This will be the first ministerial-level visit of the Syrian Foreign Minister to Egypt since the Arab League was suspended in November 2011.
Al-Miqdad's visit to Cairo comes amid official Arab talks about the return of Syria to the Arab world and about a month before the Arab Summit in Riyadh.
Shukri and Al-Miqdad last met in September 2021 in New York, marking the first meeting between the two foreign ministers in 10 years. Moreover, this visit comes about a month after Egypt's Foreign Minister visited Syria and Turkey in solidarity with them after a devastating earthquake that struck them on February 6, 2023, marking the first visit by an Egyptian Foreign Minister to Syria since 2011.
