The president of Egypt has praised the efforts of his U.S. counterpart, claiming that President Donald Trump is improving the fragile security situation in the Middle East.

Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is viewed as an American ally and was previously described by Trump as a leader who had "done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation."

Speaking to CNBC over the weekend Al-Sisi returned the compliment, dismissing a suggestion that the U.S. promise to tear up a nuclear deal with Iran could destabilize the region.

The Egyptian, who came to power as a military leader, instead insisted that security in the Middle East had improved under the stewardship of Trump.
