A “mutual understanding” on efforts to confront dangers threatening security and stability in the region was reflected in talks between Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Tuesday.
The Egyptian Presidency said in a statement that el-Sisi met bin Salman in Cairo where he reiterated “Egypt’s commitment to the security of the Gulf region as an extension of Egypt’s own national security.”
The statement added that the two leaders also discussed regional and international developments.
As part of a regional tour that also includes Jordan and Türkiye, bin Salman concluded his visit to Egypt earlier on Tuesday.
During bin Salman’s visit, a host of economic and trade agreements worth $7.7 billion were signed between Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
Tuesday’s meeting between el-Sisi and bin Salman was the second in three months. The two leaders met in Riyadh on March 8.
