Qatar’s Emir Arrives in Cairo, Meet Egypt’s President

Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani arrived in Cairo on an official visit to meet Egypt’s President on Friday.

Abdel Fattah El-Sisi welcomed the emir at Cairo airport on his first visit in seven years, El-Sisi’s office said.

The two leaders are discussed on Saturday key regional issues ahead of President Joe Biden’s anticipated trip to the Middle East next month and on ways to further improve diplomatic and economic relations, local media reported.

The emir’s visit comes days after Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman visited Cairo and the announcement of $7.7 billion in investment deals between Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain had boycotted Qatar since 2017 over charges it supports terrorism. Qatar denied the accusation.

As Egypt suffers economic headwinds as a result of the war in Ukraine, its cabinet said in March that Egypt and Qatar had agreed to sign investment deals worth $5 billion.
