Ties thaw as Egypt’s Sisi meets top Qatari envoy

Published: Updated:

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met a top Qatari envoy in Cairo on Saturday as part of Saudi-brokered reconciliation that was hailed by Riyadh as the opening of “a new page” between the two Arab states.



Sisi met Sheikh Mohammad bin AbdelRahman al-Thani, the special envoy to Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, and Khalid al-Tuwaijri, the head of the Saudi Royal Court and personal secretary to Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz.



The meeting between Sisi and the Qatari envoy is the first since the Egyptian leader took office last summer.
