Shoigu proposed Egypt to strengthen the army

Interstate relations between Russia and Egypt, which began in the days of the USSR in 1943, have passed the test of time and can reach a whole new level.

During a meeting in Cairo with President of the Republic Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu conveyed to the Egyptian leader best wishes from Russian President Vladimir Putin and stated that the Russian military was ready to assist in strengthening the national armed forces and defense capabilities of the Arab Republic.

The head of the Russian defense department arrived in Cairo to attend the sixth meeting of the joint Russian-Egyptian commission on military-technical cooperation.

In turn, the President of Egypt noted that he was counting on the productivity of the upcoming plenary meeting of the joint Russian-Egyptian commission.

Recall that Russia was the first country not related to the Arab world, which, after taking office in 2014, was visited by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Since then, the leaders of Russia and Egypt have met quite often and, according to eyewitnesses, have sincere sympathy for each other.

In the field of military-technical cooperation, Egypt is one of the priority partners for Russia: in addition to military supplies equipment countries conduct joint exercises regularly.

    It would not hurt Mr. Shoigu to tackle the Russian army and solve the problems of occupying the territories of Russia with all sorts of independent countries of the former Union, chronically ill with Russophobia ... We have no relatives in Africa, let them solve their problems there!

      You may not have noticed, but over the past years, you’ve taken up the 10th army the way you didn’t even in the RF or in the Union for 50 years ... And the results are obvious. If you mean the occupation of the territory of the Russian Empire or the USSR, then I completely agree. If the Russian Federation, so nobody seems to occupy it, thank God ...
      And as for Africa, this is just what is needed in order to have funds for your army. And the military-industrial complex should still be best loaded with specialized orders, and not pans and refrigerators.
      It is clear that there is always something to strive for, but what is really done is still necessary to appreciate. Nobody is perfect, and modern power, including and Shoigu, but this is definitely the best that has appeared in our country since the pre-perestroika times, and maybe even more ...
