Cairo -  Egypt's presidency says that US President Donald Trump spoke with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, who expressed hope for a "new push" in bilateral relations under Trump's administration.

The statement said that the newly-inaugurated Trump called Sisi on Monday and "expressed his appreciation for the difficulties Egypt bears in its war against terrorism."

Trump and Sisi have already shown a certain bond. Trump said there was "good chemistry" when they met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in September.
