Slovenian foreign minister Karl Erjavec and his visiting Egyptian counterpart Sameh Hassan Shoukry labelled their meeting here on Tuesday as a new stage in ties between the two countries at both political and business levels.

The first ever visit of Egyptian foreign minister to Slovenia will surely contribute to enhancing political, economic and other ties, Erjavec said after the two countries signed a memorandum on cooperation in sport, according to the Slovenian Press Agency (STA).

Erjavec said that bilateral talks gave many opportunities to enhance cooperation, while the two ministers also agreed that a new mixed economic commission can be beneficial to bilateral trade.

"This visit highlights and reiterates the importance that Egypt places in its relationship with Slovenia," said Shoukry, calling for enhancing mutual investment.

The pair discussed EU-Egypt relations as well. Their talks also touched on regional and international affairs such as Syria, Libya, Iraq, migrations and terrorism, said STA.

The Egyptian foreign minister also met President Borut Pahor and Prime Minister Miro Cerar on Tuesday as part of his visit to Ljubljana.
