Egypt is doing an outstanding job in the fight against terrorism, US President Donald Trump said at a meeting with his Egyptian counterpart, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, during which the two leaders discussed bilateral, regional issues and religious freedom. “I want to thank you, and I want to congratulate you on doing an outstanding job with respect to terrorism,” Trump told al-Sisi during the bilateral meeting held in New York on the sidelines of the annual United Nations General Assembly. “I know you are working very hard on that. It is not easy. And you are at the forefront. But you have done an outstanding job and I just want to congratulate you,” Trump said.

Al-Sisi said he would be able to attain the objective of eliminating terrorism.
