Egypt, Saudi Arabia hold political consultations on bilateral relations and regional issues

Egypt Sunday hosted political consultations with Saudi Arabia on bilateral relations and regional issues as ways to boost their ties, Daily News Egypt reports.
The talks, the media notes, dealt with a number of regional and international files of mutual interest, coordinating positions on them, in addition to discussing ways to advance bilateral cooperation between the two countries.
The Egyptian side was headed by Alaa Moussa — the Assistant Foreign Minister for Arab Affairs — while the Saudi side was headed by Sami bin Abdullah Al-Saleh — the Saudi Assistant Minister of State for African Affairs.
Ties between the two countries have recently deepened. Last week Saudi Arabia agreed to set up a public invest fund in Egypt.
Egypt’s President Abdelfattah al-Sisi traveled to the kingdom last month as part of his Gulf tour.
