CAIRO: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi met with Kuwaiti Justice Minister Yacoub Al Sanea to discuss counter-terrorism efforts that will be on the agenda of the Justice Arab Ministers meeting facilitated by the Arab League Wednesday, the Presidential office said in a statement.
“President Sisi stressed the necessity of enhancing judiciary cooperation to face the current challenges and organized crimes that face the Arab nation,” the statement said.
Both sides tackled the necessity of combating the terrorists who use online sites and social media for disseminating their extremist ideologies, the statement continued.
President Sisi had paid Kuwait a one-day visit to enhance bilateral relations.
In March 2015, Kuwait pledged $4 billion dollars in investments to Egyptian, followed by an $8B pledge by Saudi Arabia and UAE during the Sharm el-Sheikh Economic Development Conference.
Kuwait is one of the Gulf States that supported the mass protests which called for the end of the former President Mohamed Morsi’s regime. Between July 2013, when Morsi was removed from office, and January 2015 Kuwait granted Egypt $4 billion in aid.
