Kuwait's Emir Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah is going to attend the upcoming Economic Development Conference planned for next March in Sharm El-Sheikh, the Egyptian presidency announced on Wednesday.
Early Wednesday, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi received the Kuwaiti ambassador Salem Ghassab in Cairo who delivered a personal message from Kuwait's Emir informing him he would personally attend the conference.
The Egyptian presidency's spokesperson, Alaa Youssef, said in a media statement that the Emir's attendance was to show appreciation to Egypt and its people.
Kuwait has been supporting Egypt politically and financially after the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
