The existing Egyptian-Emirates relations set a model example for Arab relations .The distinguished relations binding the two governments and peoples, are positively reflected on various aspects of bilateral relations. The two countries work to achieve a number of common goals, most prominently the Arab solidarity and cooperation. The two countries also renounce violence and call for resolving differences by peaceful means.
On July 22, 2008, Egypt and the UAE signed a MOU by virtue of which holders of diplomatic and special mission passports from both countries would be exempted from entry visas.
The political relations between Egypt and the UAE witnessed a strong boost after 30 June, when Abu Dhabi supported Adly Mansour's assumption of the presidency and affirmed its full and continuous support to the Egyptian people in the implementation of the road map, announced by the Armed Forces with the participation of political and religious forces.
On the foreign policy level, recent years have witnessed close coordination between the two countries on key issues such as the Palestinian, Iraqi, Lebanese, Libyan, Yemeni and Syrian issues. There is a great convergence of views and political stances on regional issues .Both sides confirm:
- The importance of the political settlement of these crises to stop the bloodshed of innocent citizens, to preserve the capabilities of the peoples, to safeguard the territorial integrity of the Arab states and to preserve the unity of the Arab countries.
- The need to intensify joint Arab action and international efforts to reach political settlements to all regional crises, especially efforts to combat terrorism, to stop funding terrorist groups.
