Promoting the joint Arab action and peace and stability in the Middle East will be also on their agenda.
Egypt and Kuwait have good relations at many levels; in January 2017, Egypt and Kuwait signed in Cairo a legal and judicial cooperation agreement on civil, commercial, criminal and personal status issues, as well as on the transfer of sentenced persons.
