US Central Intelligence Agency chief William Burns met Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi on Sunday for talks on the situation in the Palestinian territories, Libya and Afghanistan, the president's office said.

The talks in Cairo covered “a number of regional issues of common interest especially tensions in the Middle East as well as Afghanistan, the Renaissance Dam [in Ethiopia] and the crisis in Libya,” Egypt's western neighbor, it said in a statement, without giving details.

Egypt is the second largest recipient of US aid in the world after the Zionist entity and a key regional ally.

On Ethiopia, Cairo has garnered critical support from Washington over its water rights being adversely affected by Addis Ababa's mammoth dam project.
