Qatar and Egypt cement rapprochement on emir's Cairo visit

Egypt’s leader on Saturday discussed energy and investment with Qatar’s emir, who was in Cairo for the first time since the countries restored relations following a Saudi-led rift.

Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani told President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi that his country was keen to “maximise Qatari investments in Egypt and take advantage of the vast investment opportunities available”, according to an Egyptian presidency statement.
