Embattled Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi arrived in Cairo Wednesday on a visit to Egypt during which he will attend the opening of a new shipping route of the Suez Canal, due on Thursday.

Hadi, who arrived from Riyadh, is expected to meet with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi for talks on regional developments, a Yemeni source said.

In upon-arrival statements, Hadi said he will hold talks in Egypt on ways of bolstering bilateral relations.

The Yemeni leader went on to hail Egypt's role in a Saudi-led coalition against Yemen's Shia Houthi group.

Egypt is a member of a Saudi-led military coalition that has been pounding positions in Yemen held by the Houthis since late March.
