Ellwood stressed his country's keenness on taking part in the conference with a senior-level delegation, despite the difficulty of traveling of senior British officials abroad because of preparations of British general elections in May.
The two Egyptian ministers highlighted the importance of holding a conference in UK to follow up the results of Sharm el-Sheikh conference after the parliamentary elections.
The British minister asserted that his country was ready to offer all needed economic support to Egypt.
