Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense, arrived in Egypt as his official visit. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will be continuing a tradition of deep-rooted historical relations that span several decades, dating back to the days of Saudi Arabia’s founder, King Abdul Aziz.

The first official visit to Egypt by King Abdul Aziz was on January 10, 1946. The only other time he left the Arabian Peninsula was to visit US President Franklin D. Roosevelt aboard the USS Quincy in the Suez Canal.

In order to pick up King Abdul Aziz in Jeddah, Egypt’s King Farouk sent his royal yacht, El-Mahroosa.
They boarded a royal train toward Cairo, after welcoming him in Suez, where they held talks in Abdeen Palace.

The ties between Saudi Arabia and Egypt were defined by the times, over the years.

Saudi King Faisal’s rule was one of tenacity and craft. His first official visit was on September 8, 1965, was a prime supporter of Egypt and its people and visited the country seven times during his rule.

During the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, Egypt supported King Faisal’s oil embargo in protest against Western support for Israel.
