    Saudi Arabia’s King Salman is to talk about the economic, security issues and regional problems during his visit to Cairo.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) — Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will discuss the economic and security issues, as well as the regional problems during his visit to Cairo, the Egyptian presidential administration said in a statement Thursday.

    Later in the day, King Salman will arrive in Egypt for a five-day visit.

    "The discussion of regional and international problems, as well as the whole range of issues linked to the protection of the national Arab security in the face of regional and external challenges will take place," the statement obtained by RIA Novosti reads.

    It was added in the statement that King Salman was expected to sign a number of bilateral agreements with the Egyptian leadership.
