Qatar’s Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani will visit Egypt on Friday for bilateral talks with President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, a source briefed on the visit told Daily News Egypt.
The two leaders have met twice since the restoration of relations between the two countries. The first was on 28 August 2021 during Baghdad Cooperation and Partnership’ conference. The second time was on the sidelines of the opening ceremony of the 24th Winter Olympics Beijing in February.
Egypt and Qatar have been working on boosting their relations since the two countries agreed to end a long-running dispute, as they along with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) signed the Al-Ula Declaration in January 2021.
On Tuesday, the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in Doha on financial policy coordination between their finance ministries on the sidelines of the Qatar Economic Forum.
In March, Egypt’s President Al-Sisi said the tangible progress in Egyptian-Qatari relations should serve the interests of both countries, this came during his meeting in Cairo with Doha’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani.
