Egypt's El-Sisi hosts tripartite summit with Israeli, UAE leaders
The summit comes following Emirati rapprochement with Iran and Russia.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi received in Sharm El-Sheikh the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan (MBZ), and the Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, according to the Presidency's Spokesperson, Bassam Rady.
The three officials discussed the impact of global developments, especially with regards to energy, market stability, and food security, while also exchanging views on the latest international and regional developments.
El-Sisi had received MBZ on Monday in Sharm el-Sheikh a few hours after the arrival of the Israeli occupation's PM.
The Israeli and Emirati leaders made their way to the Arab state as part of an unannounced visit, as reported by Israeli media.
The official Emirati news agency WAM said the meeting "discussed ways of enhancing relations between the three."
It also addressed "the importance of cooperation and coordination to drive development and enhance stability in the region, as well as bolstering global energy security and market stability."
Israeli website Walla! news reported, quoting a senior official in "Tel Aviv", that a trilateral summit will be held between Bennett, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, and MBZ in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
"Against the backdrop of the recent developments in the world and the region, the leaders discussed the ties between the three countries and ways to strengthen them on all levels," said a statement from Bennett's office.
"This trilateral meeting in Sharm El-Sheikh is aimed against Iran," Israeli media reported, noting that the three parties had coordinated this visit at a prior time in light of talks about the Iranian nuclear deal.
The Israeli i24 News reported that the Israeli Prime Minister and the Egyptian President will meet in Cairo on Monday to discuss bilateral and regional issues.
The Israeli website also quoted Bennett's words after the visit where he said there were discussions about an extra step toward mending ties between "Tel Aviv" and Cairo.
