The Egyptian presidency has denied any modifications to the date or the programme of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi’s latest visit to the UAE, Al-Ahram newspaper reported on Sunday, despite media reports that El-Sisi would meet with Saudi's King Salman while in the Gulf country.
El-Sisi visited Abu Dhabi for two days last week, returning to Cairo on Saturday.
Later on Saturday, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia arrived in the UAE on an official tour to the Gulf States that will include Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait.
News reports had suggested prior to El-Sisi’s visit that the president would meet with King Salman in the UAE.
Presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef said the programme of El-Sisi’s visit was planned in advance to include only bilateral meetings with Emirati leaders and attendance at the country's 45th National Day ceremonial events on Friday.
