CAIRO, Oct. 6 (Xinhua) -- U.S. first lady Melania Trump arrived in Cairo on Saturday and was received by her Egyptian counterpart Entissar Amer al-Sisi, the Egyptian state TV reported.
Cairo was her last stop in her five-day tour in Africa.
Trump's trip is her first big solo international tour as U.S. first lady that included Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.
The U.S. first lady's tour in Cairo is expected to include visits to schools and public hospitals and meetings with mothers and children, as the trip focuses on children's health and well-being.
Egypt, a key regional ally of the United States, has a U.S.-brokered deal treaty with Israel since 1979.
Ties between Cairo and Washington were cold under former U.S. President Barack Obama, but they improved after Donald Trump came to office.
