Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has stressed the strong and solid relations between his country and the United Arab Emirates, greeting the Emirati people on the 50th anniversary of their country’s National Day.


“I am pleased to greet the UAE leaders and people on the 50th anniversary of the UAE's National Day,” Sisi posted on his Twitter account.


The Egyptian President also lauded achievements, progress and prosperity made by the Arab country over the past years in development, building and technological modernization.


“Over the past years, the UAE has introduced a unique model of development, urbanization, and technological modernization,” he wrote.


Sisi stressed that Egypt will enhance cooperation with the UAE to serve the interests of both countries’ peoples.


“We will continue to enhance [these relations] in a way that achieves the interests of our two peoples and nations,” the president wrote.


Late last month, Sisi received a phone call from Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. The spokesman for the Presidency had stated that the call touched on a number of issues pertinent to bilateral cooperation and relations between the two countries.


This is in addition to exchanging views on regional and international issues of mutual interest.


There was agreement to continue coordination and consultation between the two sides to serve the interest of both countries and peoples and to support security and stability in the region.
