Egypt top court clears Saudi island transfer

Saudi Arabia Holds First Ever All-female Marathon'Al-Ahsa Runs

Egyptian officials said that the Saudi Crown Prince's choice of Egypt as the first leg of his maiden foreign tour reflects strong links between Cairo and Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia's powerful crown prince has arrived in Egypt for a visit meant to deepen the alliance between two of the region's powerhouses.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman will hold a first-ever meeting on Monday with Egypt's Coptic Pope Tawadros II during his visit to Cairo.

"It signifies a message from Egypt and the Egyptian armed forces to the Prince that he is welcome in both in the skies and on land", Halabi said.

The head of Prince Mohammed's office, Bader al-Asaker, tweeted that the prince's plane was escorted by Egyptian fighter jets when it entered Egypt's airspace.

Sisi reiterated Egypt's keenness on elevating the level of bilateral cooperation with Saudi Arabia in various fields in the light of the distinguished strategic ties betwene the two countries, according to the Egyptian presidential spokesman.

MSU, Michigan to face each other in Big Ten Tournament
MI can become the first Big Ten program to win back-to-back conference tournaments since Ohio State did so in 2010 and 2011. The Boilermakers will be making their third appearance in the Big Ten championship since the tournament started in 1998.

According to Arab News, the crown prince and Egypt's president will discuss inter-Arab cooperation as well the latest developments in the region.

Hariri's brief resignation was seen as a politically orchastrated move by Saudi Arabia, with President Michel Aoun accusing the Kingdom of holding him against his well.

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

Saudi Arabia views Egypt as a cornerstone of regional stability, after the former army chief Sisi overthrew his Islamist predecessor Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

Egypt's constitutional court on Saturday voided contradictory lower court rulings on the controversial transfer of two islands to Saudi Arabia, state media reported.

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