Saudi King on Thursday started a five-day visit to Cairo as live footage on state television showed Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi greeting the 80-year-old Salman at Cairo airport, before heading off in a convoy to the presidential palace.

The two will hold meetings later in the day and on Friday, when they will sign 14 agreements that include a $1.5 billion deal to invest in the Sinai Peninsula, an Egyptian government official said.

Salman is expected to address the Egyptian parliament on Sunday, state media reported.

The visit follows months of reports in both Saudi and Egyptian newspapers of strained ties over Cairo's unwillingness to participate fully in Saudi-led military operations in Yemen.
