This stance was appreciated by the Chairman of the Presidential Leadership Council, who commended Egypt’s support for his country at the political and humanitarian levels.

During the meeting, President El-Sisi and Dr. Al-Alimi were keen on consulting over the current developments in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden regions. They emphasized the necessity to strengthen efforts to resolve the Gaza crisis and subsequently reduce the current tensions, which would reflect on the situation in the Red Sea. The two sides also underscored the importance of enhancing cooperation among Red Sea riparian states, given their pivotal interest in the stability of the region and maritime security in this strategic passage.
