Egypt has set aside nearly 400 square miles of land in south Sinai to be developed in conjunction with a £370 billion city, resort and business project planned by Saudi Arabia on its Red Sea shore.

Egypt, the most populous country in the Arab world, and Saudi Arabia, one of the wealthiest, tightened their longstanding alliance after el-Sissi led the military overthrow of an elected but divisive Islamist president in 2013, with Riyadh providing tens of billions of dollars in aid.

The deal was struck as Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held talks in the Egyptian capital on Sunday at the start of his first foreign tour as heir to the throne.

The $500 billion NEOM mega city, unveiled by Prince Mohammed previous year, is planned to be a biotech and digital hub spread over 26,500 square kilometres (10,000 square miles) in an area facing Jordan and Egypt.

Egypt, UAE and Bahrain had followed Riyadh's suggestion for severing ties with Qatar in June past year.

Ahead of his visit to the UK, Saudi Arabia's crown prince has vowed his country will work with British intelligence to thwart terrorism. The mega-city is supposed to focus on industries such as energy and water, biotechnology, food, advanced manufacturing and tourism.

Saudi Arabia is known for its conventional and extremist Wahabi ideology.

This overhaul, which is the most recent in a series of relaxed laws and restrictions, has become something of a trademark of crown prince Mohammed's approach to ruling a youthful Saudi Arabia. Videos of religious preachers' detention even during their speeches in mosques were in public domain.

The kingdom is negotiating with seven cruise companies and aims to build yacht marinas.

The Saudi government source said the joint fund, which involves leased land for the Egyptian share, would be used to develop lands in the south of the Sinai Peninsula as part of NEOM. Construction will commence in 2019 and is scheduled to complete its first phase by late 2022.
