Cairo and Doha held talks on bilateral relation and regional issues as part of efforts to bolster Egyptian-Qatari ties.


Egyptian Ambassador to Qatar, Amr Sherbini met on Sunday with Qatari Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Soltan bin Saad Al Muraikhi.


They tackled means to bolster bilateral ties, as well as regional and international issues of common interest.


An Egyptian foreign ministry statement said Al Muraikhi welcomed Sherbini’s appointment as Egypt’s new ambassador to Doha.


He hailed the ongoing development of relations between their countries after they mended ties following a diplomatic and economic rift that lasted four years.


Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain mended ties with Qatar earlier this year by signing the AlUla Declaration.


Since then, Egyptian and Qatari foreign ministers have exchanged visits and Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi held bilateral talks with Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani in Baghdad in August.


The Egyptian foreign ministry highlighted the rapprochement with Qatar, hoping cooperation can be further bolstered in the future.
