Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi held a meeting with Kuwaiti Prince Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah at the prince's Bayan palace on Sunday in Kuwait, state news agency MENA reported.

The meeting saw a discussion on enhancing relations between the two countries as well as methods of consolidating Arab efforts.

El-Sisi arrived at Kuwait International Airport earlier this morning in a two-day visit, where he was received by Prince Sabah and other Kuwaiti officials.

The Arab Gulf country has back Egypt economy with billions of dollars in oil shipments, cash grants and central bank deposits since the 2013 ouster of Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi. 

Following his visit to Kuwait, the Egyptian president is set to head to Bahrain to meet with King Hamad Ben Eissa Al-Khalifa to discuss developing bilateral relations between the two countries as well as "foreign intervention" in the region.

Egypt has recently carried out several joint military exercises with Bahrain and other Gulf countries.

In March, Sisi met with several top UAE leaders, including Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, where he discussed the importance of intensifying Arab and international efforts to achieve political resolutions to the region’s various civil conflicts, and stressed Egypt's appreciation of its ties with the UAE and the support of the Gulf country to Cairo.
