In his first international visit since taking office, Egyptian president Mohammed Mursi said his talks with Saudi's King Abdullah had been "fruitful" and had covered bilateral relations, Gulf security and Syria, Saudi's SPA news agency reported on Thursday.

Though the Saudi news agency provided few details about the discussions between the two leaders, it cited Mursi as praising King Abdullah for showing a "wisdom, love and knowledge of the Egyptian people".

Mursi said that the stability of the region depended on that of Egypt and the Gulf, particularly Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, however, both the Saudi and Egyptian press reported Thursday that Cairo's much-needed economic ties with the oil-rich kingdom were also high on the agenda for Egypt's new president during his Saudi visit.
