A beaming Sisi greeted the prince at Cairo airport after he descended the red-carpeted steps of his plane.

During his three-day visit to Egypt, Salman is expected to visit the main Coptic cathedral in Cairo, the first by a senior Saudi official, according to sources in the Egyptian capital.

Shortly after the reception ceremony, El-Sisi and Bin Salman held a bilateral summit at the Ittihadeya Presidential Palace in Cairo.

Sisi stressed to Prince Mohammed: "The security of the Arab Gulf is an integral part of Egypt's security".

In April 2016, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz paid Al-Azhar Mosque a visit, and put the foundation stones of its new city where Al Azhar University's students from all over the world reside.

Following the signing of the deal, widespread protests broke out across Egypt. Opponents of the agreement said it amounted to selling off Egypt's sovereign powers and that it violated the constitution, which bars the surrender of any territory.
