Cairo - Egypt's leading state-owned newspaper says President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi and US President Donald Trump will meet in Washington next month.

Al-Ahram says in a front-page report on Sunday the two leaders will meet during the first week of April, in what will be Sisi first visit to Washington since taking office in 2014.

Sisi and Trump have already shown a bond when they met in September on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. Trump, at the time the Republican presidential nominee, said there was "good chemistry" and Sisi said Trump would "without a doubt" make a strong leader.

Cairo and Washington are expected to forge closer ties under Trump following years of tension over the Obama administration's emphasis on human rights and Cairo's perception that it supported the now-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.
