In a late phone call on Friday, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed topics of mutual cooperation with Saudi Arabia's Salman bin Abdel Aziz, presidential spokesman Bassam Rady announced in a statement. 

El-Sisi and Salman also talked about the latest developments in numerous regional matters of mutual concern and ways of coordinating joint efforts in a manner that "achieves stability in the region and the interests of the two nations."

Diplomatic relations between Egypt and Saudi Arabia were established in 1926 with the signing of the Friendship Agreement between the two states.

Egyptian-Saudi bilateral relations are viewed as one of the most prominent within the Arab world. 

Saudi Arabia is ranked the first among the Arab States and second among the world in terms of foreign investments in Egypt.
