By Manal Abdel Fattah

Ambassador Dr. Hazem Fahmy, Assistant Secretary of State for American Affairs, and Ambassador West Roman Maldonado, Ambassador of the Dominican Republic in Cairo, signed a memorandum of understanding according to which a mechanism for political consultation will be established between the Arab Republic of Egypt and the Dominican Republic through the foreign ministries of the two friendly countries.

The mechanism includes agreeing to hold periodic meetings at the level of the two countries’ foreign ministers or deputy foreign ministers to discuss developing bilateral relations between them in various fields and exchanging views and visions of officials of the two countries on regional and international issues.

It is worth noting that the Dominican Republic is one of the countries in the Caribbean region that was founded in 1844 and has been headed by President Louis Abi Nader since 2020, who is of Arab origin.

Egypt and the Dominican Republic have good relations in various fields and support each other in nominations for international positions. The Dominican Republic has opened a resident embassy in Cairo since 1975.

The signing of the aforementioned memorandum of understanding comes within the framework of the approach strategy that Egypt recently adopted towards Latin American countries, especially in light of the positive positions of its countries towards Arab issues in general and the Palestinian issue in particular.
