"Egypt has ceded two islands to Saudi Arabia, settling a long-standing maritime dispute but angering the Egyptian opposition. The islands of Tiran and Sanafir have strategic importance. The 80-year-old Saudi monarch addressed the Egyptian parliament on Sunday where he received a tumultuous welcome with repeated applause and standing ovations as he wrapped up a five-day visit announcing investment in Egypt's economy and infrastructure."
