El Sisi receives outgoing UAE envoy

CAIRO, 3rd May, 2016 (WAM) -- President of Egypt Abdel Fattah El Sisi, received at El-Ittihadiya Presidential Palace, Mohammed Nakhaira Al Dhaheri, UAE Ambassador to Egypt and Permanent Representative to the Arab League, at the end of his tenure in the country.

Ambassador Nakhaira thanked President el-Sisi for honouring him in the name of the UAE. He added that the fact that he was concluding his tenure as the UAE ambassador to Egypt with a meeting with President el-Sisi "is deemed a feather in the cap of the UAE diplomacy."

He noted that he was honoured to work in Egypt, which is a major Arab country, thanks to its strategic location and regional status.

The outgoing envoy stressed that the UAE leadership is keen to sustain and strengthen ties with the sisterly state of Egypt.
