      Russian Minister of Defense Arrives in Cairo

      Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu arrived in Cairo last night (Wednesday) where he will be meeting with government officials in Egypt, including his counterpart General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, and  temporary President of Egypt, Adly Mansour.

      The Russian Defense Minister will be joining Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. During the visit, the parties are scheduled to discuss expanding military cooperation between the two countries and the potential signing of an arms deal, due to the curtailment of American aid to Egypt’s military.
