Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi arrived in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday for talks with top officials, state media said.
Sisi's visit comes 24 hours after the UAE brokered a meeting between Fayez al-Sarraj, head of Libya's UN-backed Government of National Accord, and military strongman Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar who refuses to recognise the GNA.
State-run news agency WAM said Sisi was accompanied by Egypt's foreign and investment ministers on his two-day visit to the UAE, one of the main donors of Egypt's central bank.
Egypt has received more than $20 billion in aid from Gulf countries that supported the overthrow of Sisi's Islamist predecessor Mohamed Morsi.
The UAE alone last year pledged $5 billion to Egypt, which has been plagued by economic instability since the 2011 revolution that toppled longtime president Hosni Mubarak.
