In order to discuss bilateral relations and issues of mutual concern, Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani held talks with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi in Doha on Wednesday.
The Amiri Diwan said in a statement that the talks between the two leaders took up ways of enhancing bilateral relations as well as regional and international issues of mutual interest.
The statement expressed that Sheikh Tamim voiced hope that the Egyptian leader’s visit “will contribute to boosting cooperation ties between the two countries to meet the aspirations of the two brotherly peoples.”
For his part, the Egyptian president expressed his hope “to strengthen relations between the two countries and push them to broader horizons,” the statement added.
The two leaders agreed to boost coordination to reach political settlements to regional crises, an Egyptian presidential spokesperson said.
The spokesperson indicated that the two leaders also discussed ways of expanding trade, economic ties and joint investments between the two sides.
Since taking office in 2014, el-Sisi arrived in Doha on Tuesday for his first official visit to Qatar.
Following the signing of a reconciliation agreement in Al-Ula, Saudi Arabia, which brought down the curtain on the Gulf crisis that broke out in the summer of 2017, Egypt and Qatar restored diplomatic ties in January 2021.
