Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sisi left the UAE on Tuesday after a two-day state visit.

He was seen off at the Presidential Airport by Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

He was also wished farewell by Lt General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed Al Nahyan and other senior officials.

The two sides agreed to concentrate efforts along with the international community in tackling extremism across the region and eliminating interference in the internal affairs of various Arab countries.

"The Emirati-Egyptian co-ordination has proved its hardness over the past years in facing various challenges in the region, foremost of which is the challenge of terrorism, which has become a serious global threat that cannot be tolerated,” Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed said to UAE state news agency Wam.
