Sheikh Sabah Hamad Sabah visited Cairo Monday to meet with various high-ranking Egyptian officials.
The Kuwaiti foreign minister met with interim Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi, Field Marshal Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and interim Minister for Foreign Affairs Nabil Fahmy, among others, to discuss cooperation between the two nations.
Sabah’s meeting with El-Beblawi focused on “the revitalisation of bilateral relations” between the two nations, referred to as “Egypt and her older sister” in a statement posted to the cabinet’s official Facebook page.
The duo also discussed a Joint Commission between the two nations, although the cabinet spokesperson was unavailable for comment on the exact nature of the commission.
El-Beblawi encouraged the Kuwaiti foreign minister to strengthen economic ties with Egypt, saying “the economic situation is improving day after day”. Sabah expressed interest in medium to long-term development projects in Egypt.
Sabah’s meeting with Al-Sisi touched on many of the same topics, with Sabah adding that Kuwaiti officials express support for Al-Sisi and the armed forces as well as the people of Egypt as they move forward with the post-3 July roadmap.
Egyptian Army Chief of Staff Sedky Sobhi and the Kuwaiti ambassador to Egypt also attended the meeting Monday.
