Egyptian President Set to Visit Qatar this Week

Doha, MINA – Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi is set to visit Qatar this week, a high-level source told Anadolu Agency on Monday.

“He will meet during his two-day visit with Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani for talks on bilateral ties and a number of regional and international issues,” the source said.

The visit will be the first by Al-Sisi to Qatar since he came to power in 2014.

In June, Sheikh Tamim visited Cairo where he held talks with Al-Sisi on promoting relations between Egypt and Qatar.

There was no confirmation of the visit yet by Egyptian or Qatari authorities.
