Saudi King to Meet As-Sisi in Egypt

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is scheduled to hold an unofficial meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah As-Sisi on Friday during a stopover in Cairo, according to a source at the Saudi embassy who was cited by Agence France Presse.

The source said the meeting would take place at the airport while another source said it would take place at the presidential palace. It will mark the first visit of a Saudi king since the ouster of former president Hosni Mubarak, more than three years ago.
