Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi held talks in Riyadh Sunday, his visit to Saudi Arabia coinciding with that of his Turkish counterpart, whom Cairo accuses of backing the banned Muslim Brotherhood.Sisi and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose relations have been strained since Sisi ousted his Islamist predecessor Mohammad Morsi in July 2013, did not meet in the oil-rich Gulf state. Salman broke official protocol to meet Sisi at the airport, a pointed mark of favor toward the Egyptian president at a time when media reports have questioned whether the close ties that existed between the two states under the late King Abdullah would continue. King Salman and Sisi also held talks on "regional and international developments".
