Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Sunday met with Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh in Sharm el- Sheikh, the first summit since his return to Egypt in March after a cholecystectomy surgery in Germany, state-run MENA news agency reported.

The two presidents held an expanded meeting attended by senior statesmen from both sides, MENA said without giving any further information about issues discussed during the summit.

The Yemeni president offered congratulations on the safe recovery of his Egyptian counterpart.

The latest summit Mubarak attended was with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin before undergoing the surgery in March.

On April 15, the Egyptian president resumed his work by holding a ministerial meeting in Sharm el-Sheikh.

Mubarak, 81, received a successful surgery to remove the gall bladder and a benign tissue on March 6 in Germany. He had been suffering from acute gall bladder inflammation, accompanied by gall stones.
