Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi arrived Saturday in Saudi capital Riyadh, three days after a major royal shakeup in the oil-rich kingdom.
On Wednesday, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz named a new crown prince, deputy crown prince and foreign minister.
The Egyptian leader is expected to hold talks with King Salman on bilateral relations and a host of issues of mutual concern, the agency said.
The Egyptian Presidency said that al-Sisi will extend his congratulations to bin Nayef and bin Salman for their appointments heirs to the throne.
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.
