Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan discussed on Monday a number of regional issues.
During a phone conversation, Sisi and Al Nahyan exchanged views on the recent developments in regional and international issues of common interest, Egyptian presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said in a statement.
The discussions came within the framework of the mutual regular consultations between the two leaders, Rady added.
They also discussed prospects for further cooperation in a way that serves the common interests of the two countries.
Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) maintain close political, military and economic ties.
The UAE, together with other Gulf countries, supported the Egyptian leadership with billions of U.S. dollars in grants, loans and deposits at Egypt’s central bank to help the country’s economy overcome pressing challenges in the past few years.
