DUBAI– Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi started on Wednesday a two-day visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), his second in fewer than two years, to discuss a host of issues of mutual interest.

Al-Sisi is expected to meet with Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, as the two leaders will review strong relations and means to develop them in various fields, official news agency WAM reported.The meeting will also cover the latest developments in the region and the world.The Crown Prince said in earlier statements that the UAE sees "consolidating the brotherly relations with Egypt" as a priority.

"The UAE's support for Egypt has been a mainstay of the country's foreign policy since the time of the late former president," he noted. Egypt and the UAE have maintained close ties over the recent years by working together on issues such as the war on terror, especially since al-Sisi's last visit to the UAE in February 2018.In April 2018, the UAE and Egypt launched a strategic partnership to develop the performance of the Egyptian government and help promote the Egypt Vision 2030.
