With India looking at keeping old warmth with Egypt, both sides are exploring ways to promote ties to the level of a strategic partnership.

Morsi, who stressed on deeper economic ties, also pitched for increased Indian investment in Egypt’s Suez Canal project.

“President Morsi and I have just concluded extensive and very productive discussions... We agreed that his visit, at an important juncture for Egypt, offers us a great opportunity to renew our relationship and take it to a different level of engagement and cooperation,” Singh said.
