Russia and Egypt Expected to Sign Arms Deal in Near Future

The Egyptian newspaper, Al-Ahram, reports that the reason for the delay of the official announcement of the Egyption Defense Minister Abdel Fattah El-Sisi's candidacy for president is a big arms deal between Egypt and Russia. The deal is expected to be signed within the next few days.

The report alleges that the deal will be closed during next week's visit to Russia by El-Sisi and Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmi.
