Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi arrived in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday to discuss bilateral relations with top Emirati officials during a two-day-visit.
Egypt’s Al-Sisi has met with Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE armed forces. They discussed several regional and international issues in political, economic and developmental fields.
The visit aims at enhancing the cooperation between the two countries through increasing investments and economic cooperation.
The visit comes in the context of “the solid brotherly relations between Egypt and the UAE, stressing interest on both sides in ongoing coordination regarding the challenges that the Arab nation is facing, and to consolidate Arab cooperation and protect Arab national security,” according to state-run news agency MENA.
This is Al-Sisi’s second visit to the UAE in the past six months. In December, he attended celebrations of the UAE’s 45th National Day, meeting Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan.
