In a telephone call with Egyptian President Abdelfattah el-Sisi, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, discussed ways of developing bilateral relations between the two countries.
They also discussed developments in the region and the prospects of further cooperation in various fields.
Sisi last travelled to Riyadh in April for the Arab Islamic American Summit, where he met with Saudi King Salman to strengthen bilateral ties and discuss Arab-American relations. President Donald Trump also attended the summit.
In April 2016, Egypt and Saudi Arabia signed their maritime border demarcation agreement, under which Saudi Arabia would have the right to sovereignty over the islands of Tiran and Sanafir in the Red Sea at the Straits of Tiran to the Gulf of Aqaba.
