Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on Wednesday discussed enhancing inter-Arab co-operation and solidarity for safeguard security and stability in Arab nations.

Welcoming El Sisi’s two-day visit that began on Wednesday, Sheikh Mohamed said it reflects existing vital co-operation and relations between the two countries.

The two leaders discussed co-operation in political, economic, developmental and other vital spheres that are of common concern for the two countries to serve their mutual interests, according to state news agency WAM.

They discussed crises in Yemen, Libya and Syria, the level of inter-Arab co-ordination and consultation about addressing these crises facing the region, as well as the dangers of terrorism and terror organisations that threaten security, stability and development in the region and the entire world.

Sheikh Mohammed reiterated the keen interest of the UAE, under the leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in bolstering fraternal relations with Egypt.

He reiterated the UAE's support for Egypt and its people’s aspiration for stability and development and that stability in Egypt means stability for the entire region due to its strategic and historic importance in the Arab world.

“The current situation in this region requires inter-Arab co-operation and solidarity that can enable the Arab nation to safeguard the security and stability of Arab states and counter existing common challenges the most important of which is the growing danger of terrorism, extremism and foreign interference that aim to undermine the security and stability of regional states.”
