CAIRO, March 19 - Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will make his first state visit to Washington during the first week of April at the invitation of US President Donald Trump, Egyptian state-owned newspaper Al-Ahram reported on Sunday.

The trip will be Sisi's first US state visit since being elected president in 2014 as former US President Barack Obama had never extended an invitation.

Sisi was elected a year after leading the military's ousting of the Muslim Brotherhood's President Mohamed Mursi after mass protests. Trump invited Sisi in January but the date of the visit had not been announced.
