Egypt, Kuwait to sign cooperation deals during Sisi’s visit, says ambassador

Egyptian Ambassador to Kuwait Tareq el Qouni said on Friday that joint cooperation agreements are set to be signed during President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s anticipated visit to Kuwait, which will start on Saturday.

In statements to MENA, Qouni said President Sisi’s two-day visit will be his third one to the Arab country since he took office in June 2014.

Sisi will be received by Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the ambassador said, adding that a session of talks between the two leaders is to be held on Sunday morning.

The talks will touch on prospects of bilateral cooperation between the two countries, the latest developments at the regional and international levels in addition to several files of common interest, he said.

The Egyptian leader is scheduled to meet with a number of ministers and top Kuwaiti officials, he added.

The visit reflects how special Egypt-Kuwait relations are and how united the two peoples have been over the past decades, particularly in confronting crises and challenges facing them, the ambassador said.

The ambassador noted that the visit comes in light of the tangible developments witnessed in various fields of bilateral cooperation, which he said was made clear during the recent exchanged visits between the two sides.
