Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi praised on Thursday Kuwait’s wise and balanced policies amid the challenges facing the Arab nation in his meeting with Kuwaiti foreign minister Ahmed Nasser Al-Sabah in Cairo, the Egyptian presidency said.
According to a presidential statement, El-Sisi asserted in the meeting Egypt’s keenness to bolster cooperation ties with Kuwait on multiple fronts.
The fact that the two countries share a sustainable development vision -- Egypt 2030 and Kuwait 2035 -- enhances opportunities for bilateral cooperation, El-Sisi told Al-Sabah.
Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said the two sides discussed Egypt-Kuwait relations and consulted on the latest regional developments, particularly in Syria and Iraq.
The Kuwaiti foreign minister delivered a message from Kuwaiti Emir Nawaf Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah to President El-Sisi, in which he asserted the Kuwaiti government and people’s appreciation of the country’s close and historical ties with Cairo.
The message emphasised Kuwait’s keenness to boost cooperation, consultation and coordination with Egypt on all fronts in light of Cairo’s efforts to preserve regional peace and security.
This is Al-Sabah's first visit to Cairo after Sheikh Nawaf Al-Sabah assumed power following the death of his elder brother in September.
