CAIRO, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao arrived here Friday, starting a two-day official visit to Egypt preceding a top-level review of action to build China-Africa cooperation.

Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazef received Wen at the airport.

During his visit, Wen is scheduled to meet with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and hold talks with Nazef. He will also meet with Arab League chief Amr Mussa, and deliver a speech at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo.

This is Wen's second official visit to Egypt. The first was in 2006, which marked the 50th anniversary of establishing diplomatic ties between China and Egypt.
