CAIRO – 29 June 2022: The keenness of the Egyptian and Bahraini leaderships to develop cooperation in the economic and investment sectors as well as trade has been reflected on the significant rise in investments between the two countries, Egyptian Ambassador to Manama Yasser Shaaban said.

Shaaban’s remarks come while Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has started an official visit to Bahrain on Tuesday, where he was received by King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.

They also discussed intensifying efforts and consolidating a unified Arab stance toward files of joint priority, on top of which is stability in the region, the continuation of a balanced diplomatic approach, and protection of national security, energy security, and food security, he added.

Shaaban hailed the historic relations between the two countries, thanking King Hamad and Bahrain’s Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa, the crown prince and prime minister, for providing all forms of support and care to the Egyptian community in Bahrain.

Sisi met on Wednesday with King Hamad in Al-Sakhir Palace and also held a meeting with Prince Salman bin Hamad.
