On Wednesday, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz named a new crown prince, deputy crown prince and foreign minister.
Al-Sisi will extend his congratulations to Prince Mohamed bin Nayef for his appointment as Saudi Arabia’s heir apparent, and to Prince Mohamed bin Salman for being named Deputy Crown Prince, the Egyptian Presidency said in a statement.
Saturday’s visit is the third by al-Sisi to Saudi Arabia this year.
Saudi Arabia was among the first Arab countries that welcomed the ouster by the army of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in mid-2013.
The oil-rich kingdom has funneled billions of dollars to help Egypt’s economy since Morsi’s overthrow.
