During the meeting, Saeed said that the two countries are keen to strengthen bilateral cooperation on all fronts.
He also said Saudi Arabia would continue "intensive consultation and coordination with Egypt on various regional issues and ways to address challenges which Arab and Islamic nations are battling."
