Qatari Emir Visits Egypt
Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has arrived in Cairo for his first visit to Egypt since the two countries restored diplomatic ties last year.
The Egyptian Presidency said that the Qatari emir was received by Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi at Cairo International Airport.
The two-day official visit is expected to include talks between the two leaders on bilateral relations and ways to enhance them in all fields.
The two sides are also expected to address the latest international and regional political issues of mutual interest.
Tamim’s visit would see the signing of several economic agreements, and ensure Qatari investment in Egypt, especially in the energy field.
In January 2021, the Arab quartet of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain signed the Al-Ula Declaration with Qatar, ending their all-round boycott of Doha since mid-2017.
