President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi will meet US Defense Secretary James Mattis on Thursday.

This comes as part of Mattis’s visit to the Middle East، which also includes Saudi Arabia، Egypt، Qatar، Djibouti and Turkey.

The meeting will tackle boosting bilateral ties as well as reviewing the latest developments in the Middle East region.

On Wednesday، Mattis visited Riyadh where he met with King Salman bin Abdel-Aziz and senior Saudi officials.

He accused Iran of creating disorder in the Middle East، stressing his country's desire to thwart the Shiite country from cloning Lebanese Hezbollah Militias in Yemen.

During the meeting، Mattis hailed the role played by Riyadh to maintain stability in the region as well as helping Jordan and Egypt with the Syrian refugees.
