Bahrain Mirror: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi approved King of Bahrain Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa's ownership of a land and 3 villas in Naama Bay resort in Egypt's Sharm Al-Sheikh for residential use, according to official Egyptian Gazette.

A new decree was issued after the approval of the defence and interior ministries, the General Intelligence Directorate (GID), the Sinai Development Agency, and the Cabinet.

The decree stipulated that the Bahraini King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa will be treated as an Egyptian citizen, in accordance with the provisions of law number 14 of 2012 on Sinai Peninsula's integrated development; this decree was amended by law number 95 of 2015 which stated that he will own the entire land and buildings for the villas numbers (C, E2, B2/70), in Sharm Al-Sheikh's Naama Bay resort in South Sinai Governorate, for residential use.

During Bahraini King's visit to Egypt last April, the two countries signed 15 new cooperation agreements in various fields, which included defence, media, agriculture, health, endowments, diplomatic cooperation, tourism, higher education, international and maritime navigation, and environment.
