CAIRO: An Emirati police delegation arrived in Egypt Sunday to meet with senior officials from the Egyptian Ministry of Interior to discuss security cooperation between the two countries as well as counter-terrorism measures, reported Youm7.
The Dubai delegation, headed by Major General Abdul Quddous Abdul Razzaq al-Obaidly, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police for Quality and Excellence Affairs, consisted of 6 senior officials from the Dubai police.
On Jan. 11, Minister of Interior Mohamed Ibrahim left for the United Arab Emirates in a three-day visit to discuss police cooperation with the Gulf state.
Ibrahim met with top UAE police chiefs and discussed expanding cooperation in intelligence, countering terrorism, arresting suspects, smuggling and crime.
Within the framework of the security cooperation between the two countries, the UAE sent 15 armored vehicles to Cairo March 23, 2014, to be used as an asset in securing presidential elections.
Egypt-UAE relations have improved greatly since the ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, after the UAE announced in January 2014 that it caught a “Muslim Brotherhood cell” that recruits members and wires large amounts of money to a mother group in Egypt.
The UAE has also pumped funds and investments into Egypt to help revive its embattled economy.
