Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi arrived on Sunday in Muscat for a three-day official visit, his first to the Gulf country, to intensify joint consultation and coordination to serve the interests of the two countries.

During their meeting, El-Sisi and Oman's Sultan Qaboos discussed enhancing bilateral relations, Arab Gulf security and cooperation over counter-terrorism efforts.

El-Sisi's visit to Oman is the first by an Egyptian president since 2009.
