Saudi crown prince endorses 'legitimate Palestinian rights' in Jerusalem

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi received on Sunday Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud.

In April 2017, King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz conferred with the Coptic pope at a Cairo hotel where the Saudi monarch was staying during an official visit to Egypt.

The head of Prince Mohammed's office, Bader al-Asaker, tweeted that the prince's plane was escorted by Egyptian fighter jets when it entered Egypt's airspace.

Sisi said the security of Gulf countries is closely related to Egypt's national security.

President El Sisi and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held a bilateral session of talks, followed by an expanded meeting attended by the two countries' delegations.

Riyadh viewed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood with suspicion and at one point briefly recalled its ambassador from Cairo during his turbulent year in power.

Egypt's constitutional court on Saturday voided contradictory lower court rulings on the controversial transfer of two islands to Saudi Arabia, state media reported.

Saudi Arabia has supported Sisi and legal wrangling over the Red Sea deal was a source of tension between the two countries.

While expressing support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen, Cairo has stopped short of full engagement and has instead settled for a less direct military-support role.

"The prince also emphasized the keenness of the Saudi kingdom and its continued resolve in supporting the Palestinian issue and the Palestinian people attaining their legitimate rights including those in east Jerusalem".

Prince Mohammed is already seen as the country's de facto ruler controlling the major levers of government.
