Saudi Arabia and Egypt sign ‘Cairo Declaration’ 


July 31, Cairo: Egypt and Saudi Arabia have signed the ‘Cairo declaration’ to enhance mutual cooperation and boost military and economic ties between the two countries.

Saudi deputy crown prince and defense minister Mohammad Bin Salman met with Egyptian president Abdul Fattah Al Sissi Thursday and the two leaders also will work to create a joint Arab military force, said a statement released after the meeting.

Arab defence and foreign ministers are to gather in Cairo to discuss the modalities of the force on August 27.

Relations between the two countries have warmed since the 2013 ouster of President Mohamed Morsi, with Saudi Arabia offering billions in aid to Egypt.
