The Egyptian President accompanied the Crown Prince in an official motorcade to Al-Ittihad Palace.

One of the Egyptian fighter pilots said that the warplanes came out of their bases and were on standby to accompany the plane carrying the Saudi royal delegation and to fly near it as soon as it reached Egyptian airspace.

Prince Mohammed will hold further meetings with Sisi, a key regional ally, and other officials in Egypt before flying off to Britain on Wednesday and then later this month the United States.

The President emphasized that Egypt's leadership and people have a high regard and appreciation for The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz and for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, given the historic relations and bonds between the two countries.

Also on Sunday, US President Donald Trump called Sisi to discuss with him "regional issues" and "ways of combating terrorism", a statement from the Egyptian presidency said.

He was received by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and senior Egyptian officials at Cairo International Airport.

Rady also highlighted the significance of the visit's timing in light of the "great challenges now taking place in the Middle East, which require mutual coordination between Egypt and Saudi Arabia".

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz.

Last June, Egypt joined Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in breaking off diplomatic and transportation links with Qatar over its support for terrorist groups.

Before that, however, he visited Egypt four times (three times in 2015 and once in 2016) after Sisi assumed the presidency in mid-2014.

The day before Prince Mohammed's visit, Egypt's top court dismissed all outstanding legal challenges to the deal on the Red Sea islands.
