The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Egypt, Sameh Shoukry, discussed with his Saudi counterpart, Faisal bin Farhan, the situation in the Arab region, especially the situation in Libya, Syria and Yemen.
The meeting between the two parties was held on the sidelines of the Arab ministerial contact group summit in Cairo. The ministerial summit was concerned with Syria, following the normalization of relations with the Syrian regime after more than a decade-long suspension of Syria’s membership by the Arab League, after the outbreak of the Syrian civil war.
The two ministers stressed the need to advance frameworks of solidarity and joint Arab action in facing various crises in the region in order to preserve Arab regional security.
Moreover, the two sides agreed that solutions proposed for these issues should be Arab-based initiatives, in a way that “meets aspirations to establish stability and achieve progress and development”, according to the press statement.
