Kuwait- Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah received Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi at Bayan Palace on Sunday.

The two sides discussed boosting bilateral ties and cooperation on all levels as well as developing joint-Arab work, said Deputy Minister of Amiri Diwan Affairs Sheikh Ali Jarrah al-Sabah in a statement.

Sheikh Sabah also held a luncheon in honor of the Egyptian President.

Egyptian presidency spokesman Alaa Youssef said that the emir of Kuwait underlined the uniqueness of Egyptian-Kuwaiti ties, their mutual history and unified destiny.

Youssef said Sisi stressed that Egypt would not allow shaking the stability of the Gulf, emphasizing that Cairo stands beside Kuwait and the Gulf in confronting any regional or foreign threats.

Sisi and Sabah agreed the two countries should join efforts to encounter terrorism, and that the international community should work harder to reach political settlements to the region’s crises in a way that preserves the institutions of these countries, Youssef added.

The Egyptian president and his accompanying delegation arrived on Sunday to Kuwait on a two-day visit.

Sisi’s visit to Kuwait comes days after his return from UAE, and from Saudi Arabia last month where he showcased some of the crises taking place in Syria, Yemen and Libya in addition to the terrorism threat.
