Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly said on Sunday that Egypt is keen to provide all political and logistical support to Yemen and the Yemeni people.
In a press conference, Yemeni Prime Minister Maeen Abdul-Malik asserted that Egypt fully supports the Yemeni government and President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. "Egypt supports Yemen, its safety and the unity of its territories because Yemen's stability means stability for Egypt," he said.
"Egypt is honoured to be hosting more than 1 million Yemeni citizens and the Egyptian government is keen to treat them like Egyptian citizens, affording them the same rights and services," he said during the press conference, which was held following his talks with the Yemeni prime minister.
Madbouly also said the Egyptian government has provided support for the Yemeni citizens in terms of healthcare and education.
"The Egyptian government rejects all forms of regional intervention from non-Arab countries in Yemen, as those interventions destabilise and complicate the Yemeni scene," he said, adding that Egypt appreciates the efforts of Saudi Arabia and the Arab coalition in supporting legitimacy, unity and stability in Yemen.
Egypt is part of the coalition launched in 2015 to fight the Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen.
The Egyptian prime minister revealed that he spoke with his Yemeni counterpart about bilateral economic cooperation in rebuilding Yemen, adding that Egyptian companies and technical expertise will benefit the Yemeni people in the rebuilding of their country.
Yemeni Prime Minister Abdul-Malik said that Egypt and Yemen share the same views about their national security, adding that Yemen is currently in a very difficult phase because of the foreign interventions and Iranian backed-Houthi militias.
The Egyptian government invited the Yemeni premier to visit Cairo last week for talks and consultations on boosting bilateral relations.
