Abu Zeid added that the two ministers were keen on exchanging their visions regarding Safadi’s last visit to Washington and the tour made by the U.S. Vice President Mike Pence in the region. They also focused on the upcoming meeting of the Arab Foreign Ministries at the Arab League, set to take place in February.

Abu Zeid also remarked that they stressed on the importance of enhancing coordination and consultations between Egypt and Jordan for further development in the region and for preserving Arab national security and solidarity in the face of various challenges.

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry headed to Riyadh on Monday to take part in a ministerial meeting of the Coalition Supporting Legitimacy in Yemen, spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry Ahmed Abu Zeid said on Sunday.

The meeting tackled efforts to coordinate the delivery of humanitarian assistance to Yemen.

The Riyadh meeting reflected the coalition's commitment to meeting the humanitarian needs of brotherly Yemeni people.

It also mirrored the Egyptian government and people's solidarity with the Yemeni people in times of need and their support of the Yemeni government until it regains full control over Yemeni territories.

Shoukry made clear that Egypt has previously dispatched humanitarian assistance to Yemen that was delivered through King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center and is about to send a new package of assistance.
