Al-Sisi is scheduled to hold talks with Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on cooperation relations and ways of boosting them in various fields, Egyptian Presidential Spokesman Alaa Yousef said.

The President's visit comes within the framework of efforts exerted by Egypt to promote joint Arab action and the development of relations between the Arab countries, he added.

Al-Sisi is also scheduled to meet with Kuwait’s Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah and National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim, the spokesman noted.

He will also meet with Kuwaiti and Egyptian businessmen in order to strengthen the economic relations between the two countries.

The President's visit will be suitable for extending appreciation and gratitude of Egypt to Kuwait, being the first Arab state to support the Egyptian Government in 2013 following the 30th of June revolution.

Kuwait’s First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said that Al-Sisi's visit to Kuwait will open future prospects of bilateral relations, describing it as “very important to complete what the country started in both regional and international issues.”

For his part, Kuwait’s Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Sabah Salem Al-Sabah stressed the importance of the historic visit, to be made by President Al-Sisi to Kuwait, viewing it as the embodiment of the depth of the ties and relations between the two countries.

Moreover, Kuwait’s Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah explained that the Council of Ministers welcomes the visit of President Al-Sisi and his accompanying delegation, noting that the visit comes within the framework of the brotherly ties between the two countries.
