Saudi Arabia and Egypt - Red Sea bridge

Saudi Arabia and Egypt will build a bridge across Red Sea


Saudi Arabia´s king has announced that a bridge linking the country to Egypt will be built over the Red Sea during the second day of his visit to the Egyptian capital, Cairo (8/4).

Speaking at a joint press conference after a meeting withEgyptian president Sissi, King Salman said the bridge would boost commerce between the two allies. This historic step to connect the two continents, Africa and Asia, is a qualitative transformation that will increase trade between the two continents to unprecedented levels.

Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi proposed the bridge would be named after the Saudi king. It marked "a new chapter on the road of Arab joint action", he said.

After the announcement, representatives of the two countries signed 17 investment agreements and memorandum in the fields of education, health, housing, agriculture, electricity and sea transport.

Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries have supported Egypt with billions of dollars since President Sisi took power in 2013 following mass street protests.

Saudi Arabia regards Egypt as a crucial partner in efforts to build a bloc of friendly Sunni Muslim states as a bulwark against growing regional influence of Shia-led Iran.

King Salman´s visit comes amid recent strains in the relationship, with President Sisi taking a less hardline stance against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Riyadh seeking more support from Cairo for its war against rebels in Yemen.

A Red Sea bridge linking the two countries has been proposed several times before but has failed to become a reality.

Previous estimates for the bridge project suggested a cost of around $3-4bn (£2-3bn), but no further information has yet been released for the latest plan.

King Salman is currently on a five-day visit to Egypt, where he is expected to announce more trade and co-operation agreements.
