CAIRO – 8 May 2017: Boosting and protecting Arab national security were at the heart of the Egypt-Kuwait summit on Sunday, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi told Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai in an interview published on its website Monday.

Sisi visited Kuwait as part of a Gulf tour that included four stops. During the visit, Sisi met with Emir Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber al-Sabah and senior Kuwaiti officials.

The visit “comes in the framework of distinctive bilateral relations between both countries,” said Sisi, adding that Kuwait’s supporting stance to Egypt “cannot be forgotten.”

Sisi said that the visit “has succeeded to push forward the horizons of cooperation between the two countries in various fields, and to continue joint coordination in dealing with challenges facing the Arab nation.”
