Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi discussed recent developments in the Middle East, particularly in the Gulf region, with UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Cairo, the Egyptian presidency said in a statement.

President El-Sisi said that Egypt has been following with great concern the recent developments threatening the safety and security of the Arabian Gulf.

El-Sisi said that Egypt stands in solidarity with the governments and peoples of the Gulf nations against the different challenges they face and the attempts to destabilise their countries.

"The national security of the Gulf is part of Egypt's national security," El-Sisi said.

Last week, two oil tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman near the strait for Hormuz.  

Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed expressed the UAE's appreciation for the role Egypt plays the region to ensure stability.

The minister said that Arab countries need to boost cooperation and coordination to enable them to preserve their security and stability.

El-Sisi and Bin Zayed also discussed the recent developments in Sudan, expressing their full support for the country and its people during this critical stage.

They also discussed the recent development in Libya, expressing their support of efforts to fight radical organisations and end the terrorism that threatens Libya and the region.

El-Sisi and Bin Zayed also discussed the situations in Yemen and Syria, expressing their support for reaching political solutions to the crises in both countries.
