It was a high-profile visit, with high-profile rhetoric. The Saudi crown prince took his first foreign policy travels, spending several days in Egypt.
He spoke of economy. The joint megacity is a future boon.
He spoke of terrorism. Turkey and Qatar need isolation.
He spoke of religion. Copts are beloved and Azhar restored.
He spoke of culture. The opera was visited and is coming to Saudi.
God, these are words to consider. They are words many question. Guide Saudi Arabia between rhetoric and reality. Transform the kingdom to mirror your will.
But God, in this relationship, bless also Egypt.
May the projects respect sovereignty and prosper the nation.
May terrorism subside, no matter its source.
May the religious respect others and hearten the nation.
May culture inspire, no matter its form.
God, give peace between nations, both near and far. Raise the profile of Egypt; may her morals be high.
