Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubier arrived in Cairo on Sunday to meet with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry, state-owned news agency MENA reported. 

The visit comes amid efforts between both countries to help reach solutions to the Syrian, Yemeni and Libyan conflicts.

Shoukry and Al-Jubier will discuss mutual counterterrorism efforts and enhancing bilateral ties.

The foreign ministers are set to hold a press conference later on Sunday. 

Following the ouster of Egypt's Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, Saudi Arabia supported the Egyptian economy with billions of dollars in loans, grants, oil products and cash deposits.
