The two speakers agreed to take the move in the near future to reflect unified positions in international parliamentary circles and regional forums.

"This coordination is important to serve the interests of the two countries in the best way," said a statement.

Bahraini speaker Fawzia Bint Abdallah said her meeting with El-Gebaly comes at the same time that Egyptian and Bahraini relations are progressing at all fronts.

"Our meeting gives a new momentum to these relations and will serve the supreme interests of our two countries," said Abdallah.

El-Gebaly also met with Ali Bin Saleh El-Saleh, the speaker of Bahrain's Shura Council – the country’s legislative upper house – in another bid to push Egyptian-Bahrain relations forward.

"We decided to exchange the legislative, political and parliamentary expertise between our two parliaments," said a statement, adding that "the strong relations between our countries also reflect the strong personal relationship between the leaders of our two countries – President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and King Hamad Bin Eissa,"
