CAIRO, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Official delegations from Egypt and Qatar held their first meeting on Tuesday in Kuwait since both countries signed a reconciliation agreement in January to end their three-year rift.

The meeting is meant to discuss mechanisms needed to enhance future joint work after the signing of the Kuwaiti-sponsored reconciliation deal in Al-Ula city of Saudi Arabia last month, Egypt's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The meeting discussed the necessary means and measures to be taken in order to enhance the process of joint work and bilateral relations, and to achieve the aspirations of their peoples in terms of security, stability and development, the statement said.

The two sides thanked Kuwait for hosting their first meeting, appreciating the efforts of Kuwait's emir that led to healing the Arab rift.

In early January, Qatar and the Arab quartet comprising Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt signed the reconciliation deal during the 41st Gulf Cooperation Council Summit.

The four states jointly cut diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar in June 2017, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs, which Qatar repeatedly denied. Enditem
