Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan left Cairo on Wednesday, May 15th, after a short visit to Egypt, during which he held talks with President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, reported MENA.

The two sides discussed the latest regional developments, particularly with regard to the sabotage attack that targeted four ships near the UAE coasts, in addition to the drone attack that hit two oil pumping stations in Saudi Arabia.

In this regard, President Sisi expressed Egypt’s full solidarity with the UAE and Saudi Arabia to combat all attempts seeking to undermine the two countries’ security and stability.

Sisi also stressed Cairo’s firm stance about the security of the Arab Gulf region, which he said is an integral part of Egypt’s national security.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed affirmed the importance of continuing coordination and consultation with Egypt, in addition to exchanging viewpoints between Cairo and Abu Dhabi on one side and with Arab states on the other.

The crown prince noted that such coordination aims to confront the challenges and crises sweeping the Arab region and combat interference in Arab states' internal affairs, which he said seeks to destabilize the security of the Arab region and its peoples.
