This came during a joint press conference Minister Shoukry held Monday in Cairo with Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed Abdulrahman Al Thani.

Minister Shoukry welcomed his Qatari counterpart, who is on a second visit to Cairo, noting that he also visited Doha as part of the return of relations between the two countries.

The Egyptian Foreign Minister explained that the talks dealt with bilateral relations and how to activate them and work to find opportunities for cooperation in all fields, all of which will be activated within the framework of the joint committee that we agreed to form.

For his part, Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said: “Relations with Egypt are in continuous development, and we have overcome the stage that was marked by some tensions, with an open heart and a future perspective, as far as the interests of our two countries are concerned”.

Abdul Rahman Al Thani added: “I agreed with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry to continue coordination and consultation on common issues and improve communication, noting that this would reflect positively on joint Arab action.”

“We discussed bilateral relations with Egypt and its transfer to broader areas and multiple fields, and we stress the importance of Egypt’s pivotal role in the Arab region, and we will support this role and the consolidation of stability,” he added.
