Saudi crown prince lands in Egypt on first public trip

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will arrive in Cairo on Sunday

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman landed in Egypt on Sunday afternoon and was received by President Abdelfattah al-Sisi, in a hugely anticipated visit.

A beaming Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi greeted the prince at Cairo airport after he descended the red-carpeted steps of his plane.

Hariri's brief resignation was seen as a politically orchastrated move by Saudi Arabia, with President Michel Aoun accusing the Kingdom of holding him against his well.

Bin Salman arrived in Cairo earlier on Sunday for his first official visit to Egypt as part of his first foreign tour since assuming the position of Crown Prince in June 2017.

Shortly after the reception ceremony, El-Sisi and Bin Salman held a bilateral summit at the Ittihadeya Presidential Palace in Cairo.

The President pointed out the important and delicate timing of the visit by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Egypt, given the current challenges in the Middle East, which necessitate coordination between Egypt and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia views Egypt as a cornerstone of regional stability, after the former army chief Sisi overthrew his Islamist predecessor Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

It is hoped the visit will strengthen relations between the two countries, as well as see discussion between the two leaders on a number of regional and worldwide issues, and consolidating joint Arab cooperation.

The meeting touched on ways to enhance various aspects of the two countries' relations, primarily economic and investment cooperation.

Prince Mohammed and Sisi, a key regional ally, agreed in talks to bolster economic ties and launch joint projects, "particularly in the tourism sector on the Red Sea", said Egyptian presidential spokesman Bassam Radi.

They also agreed on continuing to work together to counter regional interventions and attempts to sow division and rifts among the region's countries.
