07 Feb 2018

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and President Abdel Fattah El Sisi of Egypt, discussed ways to enhance fraternal relations between the UAE and Egypt on Tuesday.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed welcomed Sisi, praising the strong brotherly relations between the leadership and the people of the two countries. The meeting also touched on bilateral cooperation in various political, developmental and economic spheres and means to further this.

The two sides also reviewed a number of issues of mutual interest, as well as latest developments, particularly the interventions in the region and their implications on the security and stability of the Arab countries.

The meeting emphasised that relations between the UAE and Egypt are built on solid foundation of amity and mutual understanding on regional and international causes.

It stressed the importance of coordination among the UAE, Egypt and other brotherly countries, which had proven effective in confronting crises and challenges aimed at destabilising regional security and stability.

The UAE leaders renewed the UAE's firm position in support of Egypt, emphasising that the security of the country is integral to the security and stability of all Arab nations.

President Sisi described his country's relations with the UAE as 'exemplary' and a model for strategic cooperation among the Arab countries.

He added that his country was keen on developing bilateral relations with the UAE at all levels and on continuing coordination on different regional and international issues.

The two sides underlined the necessity to maintain unity and sovereignty of the countries that are currently facing crises, the need to enable their people and institutions to shoulder responsibility in maintaining security and stability, and to continue the development process there. They also stressed the need to exert more efforts for Arab joint action, in a way that will serve the interests of Arab people and confront the attempts to interfere in their internal affairs and to undermine their security and stability.

They also highlighted the importance of joining Arab and international efforts in confronting terrorism, especially in the areas of halting finance to terrorist groups, and supplying terrorist militias with weapons, as well as safe havens and political and media platforms to them.
