    Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed on Wednesday a strategic cooperation treaty.

    The deal is intended to bolster trade and other ties between the two nations.

    Sisi had met with Putin in Sochi on Wednesday, capping a three-day visit to Russia.

    Sisi said the treaty should "open a new chapter in the history of our cooperation."

    The two leaders have developed a close personal rapport and are seeking to expand bilateral ties.

    This week's trip was Sisi’s fourth to Russia since he took office in 2014. Putin visited Egypt in 2015 and 2017.

    The Russian leader said he and Sisi also discussed expanding arms trade and military ties, noting that Russian and Egyptian paratroopers were conducting a joint exercise in Egypt.

    Egypt has signed deals to buy billions of dollars' worth of Russian weapons, including fighter jets and assault helicopters.

    When Putin visited Cairo in December, officials signed a deal for Russia to build a nuclear power plant in Dabaa.

    Putin and Sisi discussed the implementation of the nuclear plant contract and talked about setting up a prospective Russian industrial park alongside the Suez Canal. Putin added that Russian companies expect to invest up to $7 billion in building industrial plants in the area.

    Egypt is keen of buffet...She eats where its free, kosher or no kosher..It doesn’t matter as long as it’s free...
    She depends on the US for survival, Russian’s are not that stupid or gullible.

    I like how Putin took Sisi for a ride in his Benz or whatever it was lol. He prefers to drive himself around than to be driven. The pic is very cool I'll try to find it.

    Looks like American treatment of Saudis has changed Egypt's mind about Russia

    Details... When are they gonna release any new confirmed details ?

    What exactly will be purchassed, or co-produced ?

    We have a lot to do, and a lot more to buy (because we'll not domestically-assemble or produce everything we need) if we really wanna replace aging weapones, and have a potent high-tech Army-Navy-AirForce-AirDefence-Ballistic Missiles-Communications & Satelites.
