Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met on Tuesday in Muscat with Omani Deputy Prime Minister and the Omani Sultan's special representative Asaad bin Tarek Al Said to discuss bilateral relations.

Shoukry is heading the Egyptian delegation participating in the Egyptian-Omani joint committee, which is taking place in Muscat from Monday to Wednesday to discuss boosting economic, trade and investment cooperation between Cairo and Muscat, the Omani news agency said. 

The spokesman for Egypt’s foreign ministry Ahmed Hafez said that the joint committee's work is a follow-up to the meeting of Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Oman's Sultan Qaboos Bin Said in Muscat in 2018.

The committee is expected to see the signing of a number of agreements and memorandums of understanding between the two sides, as well as consultation and coordination on regional and international issues of common concern.
