Egyptian President Abdel Fatta el-Sisi is expected in Germany ahead of the Petersberg Climate Dialogue XII which is scheduled to commence on Monday in Berlin.

The Egyptian President is one of many leaders who will be part of the deliberations aimed at laying the groundwork for an ambitious vision for COP27.

El-Sisi will co-chair the Petersberg Climate Dialogue on July 18 and 19 with German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and State Secretary and Special Envoy for International Climate Action Jennifer Morgan.

The Petersberg Climate Dialogue is an event organized by Germany since 2009. It is held to prepare the agenda for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP). Egypt is scheduled to host the COP27 summit later this year in Sharm El-Sheikh.

According to the Egyptian Presidency, the Berlin conference offers a chance for consultations and coordination among a large group of active states in efforts to combat climate change.

During his stay in Germany, the Egyptian President will also hold talks with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Chancellor Olaf Scholz, and other top officials in the German government.

During the meetings, the leaders will discuss ways to foster closer bilateral relations across all levels, as part of the two countries' commitment to strengthening cooperation and continuing intensive coordination on issues of mutual interest.
