Saudi crown prince visits Egypt

Saudi crown prince visits Egypt

He was received by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and senior Egyptian officials at Cairo International Airport.

On Friday, Hariri and the Crown Prince appeared in a selfie posted on the former's personal Twitter account, apparently signalling relations have been normalized following last year's freaky sequence of events around Hariri's resignation.

The Saudi crown prince is due on Monday to visit Al Azhar, Sunni Islam's prestigious centre of learning where he will meet with Grand Imam Ahmad Al Tayeb.

The ruling comes a day before Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrives in Egypt for a two day visit, the first leg of a foreign tour.

Visit comes three weeks ahead of an election where former general Sisi is seeking a second term.

Sisi reiterated Egypt's keenness on elevating the level of bilateral cooperation with Saudi Arabia in various fields in the light of the distinguished strategic ties betwene the two countries, according to the Egyptian presidential spokesman.

Saudi Arabia has remained Egypt's biggest supporter since the Egyptian army ousted Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected president, in a 2013 military coup led by al-Sisi.

But it is among a bloc of Arab nations that joined a Saudi-led boycott since June of Qatar.

The meeting touched on ways to enhance various aspects of the two countries' relations, primarily economic and investment cooperation. Security and stability in the region is also expected to be discussed.

A Saudi official told Reuters that Riyadh's part of the new joint investment fund will be cash to help develop the Egyptian side of NEOM, which Prince Mohammed unveiled last October as part of plans to wean the world's top crude exporter off oil revenues.
