Saudi Arabia's crown prince arrived in Egypt as he begins his first official trip overseas since assuming the powerful role last June.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman will hold a first-ever meeting on Monday with Egypt's Coptic Pope Tawadros II during his visit to Cairo.

Egypt's parliament, packed with government supporters, passed the agreement in 2017 and President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi ratified it shortly afterward.


This prompted France's Emanuel Macron to mediate his return to Lebanon, before Hariri swiftly revoked his resignation.

In a statement issued by the Egyptian presidency, the two men discussed enhancing bilateral relations, especially on investment and economy fields.

Before that, however, he visited Egypt four times (three times in 2015 and once in 2016) after Sisi assumed the presidency in mid-2014.


HRH Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman conveyed the greetings of The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz to President El Sisi.

The crown prince's tour also aims to court investors and comes after a tumultuous period that has seen a military shake-up and a royal purge in Saudi Arabia, part of his sweeping power play in the kingdom.

The Saudi-Egypt causeway or bridge will link the countries between Sinai and northern Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has supported Sisi and legal wrangling over the Red Sea deal was a source of tension between the two countries. The discussions demonstrated a mutual understanding between the two sides regarding various regional dossiers.


Prince Mohammed and Sisi, a key regional ally, agreed in talks to bolster economic ties and launch joint projects, "particularly in the tourism sector on the Red Sea", said Egyptian presidential spokesman Bassam Radi.
