US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken praised the late Jihan Sadat, wife of the late President Anwar Sadat, noting that she cooperated a lot with women’s rights associations in the United States.
This came during a joint conference with Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, on the sidelines of the strategic dialogue meetings between Cairo and Washington, which started on Monday.
Blinken said, “Many of the rules of diplomatic relations are based on the relations between the Egyptian and American people, starting with Rami Malek to the American media, Hoda Kotb, who brings the news. We use Egyptian achievements every day, such as heart transplants, which were the first to be performed by Magdi Yacoub.”
Blinken talked about the joint education programs between Egypt and the United States, saying: “The International Business Leadership Program, which extends for 80 years, was the most prominent participant in Anwar Sadat, who came to the United States for the first time in 1966 and met his wife Jihan and formed a bond that extended for years that was unfortunately severed by his assassination.”
He added: “Jihan El-Sadat has cooperated for several decades, cooperating with American women’s rights organizations, and we share Egypt’s grief over her death.”
During the conference, Blinken said that the Egyptian-American relations will complete their 100th factor in 2022, noting that the relations of the two countries are “not only strong because the two sides maintain them, but because they are constantly expanding.”
He added: “The last strategic dialogue was in 2015, and this is considered somewhat distant, but we have brought back this tradition.”
Blinken praised the role that Egypt plays in the issues and files of the Middle East, saying: “Egypt played a major role in the situation in Libya and the holding of the Libyan elections on time, and we agree to withdraw all foreign forces from Libyan lands.”
