Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir denied all media speculation recently voiced about Egyptian-Saudi relations and said ties between Cairo and Riyadh are only getting stronger.
“Recent media outlets’ reports voicing speculation about Saudi-Egyptian relations are completely baseless. The two countries have a historical and a strategic relationship, and we expect these ties to get even stronger,” Jubeir said following his meeting with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry in Riyadh.
