Egypt: Saudi Arabia - We Are Fully Supporting Egypt

The Saudi Crown Prince and First Deputy Premier Prince Salman Bin Abdul Azizi said Saudi Arabia will continue to offer every possible support to Egypt whose security and stability concern Arabs as a whole.

This came at the beginning of the two- day visit to the Kingdom by Prime Minister Dr Hazem El Biblawy who held a session of talks on Tuesday 4/2/2014 with the Saudi Crown Prince in the presence of Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al Faisal.

The session was attended from the Egyptian side by the Ministers of Transport, Investment, Planning, Petroleum and Housing.

Emerging from the session, Prime Minister Dr Biblawy said he conveyed a message from President Adli Mansour to King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz, the Custodian of the two Holy Mosques expressing sincerest thanks by the President and the Egyptian people to the kingdom for the unlimited support extended to Egypt and which reflects the close relations between the two brotherly peoples.

Premier Biblawy said Egypt is working to preserve its components strongly and sincerely through going ahead with the roadmap and the coming election commitments, adding the government is paving the road for the coming governments and is working for building a strong state which is keen to respect the rule of law.

He stressed the importance of the support provided by sisterly Arab countries in general and the gulf ones in particular topped by the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. He said this assistance helped Egypt to pass through the previous stage.

The Egyptian Ministers escorting the Prime Minister will meet today their Saudi counterparts to discus means of expanding cooperation and coordination between the two countries.
