    In fact, everything is somewhat more complicated. Egypt does not have much money to buy weapons.

    ... from 1979 to 2013, the United States provided $ 41,8 billion worth of military assistance to Egypt. Thus, military assistance in the overall balance of US aid to Egypt exceeds economic.

    And the allocation of money did not stop.

    ... as part of the foreign military assistance program for fiscal year 2018, Cairo will receive $ 1 billion. In addition, another 195 million dollars will be allocated to Egypt, which remained unspent over the past fiscal year.

    On the other hand, there is Saudi Arabia, which also pays for the "Wishlist" of Egypt, the same Mistrals were bought with their money.

    The issue with the Su-35, rather, depends on the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia, respectively, Saudi Arabia and Russia. But the Egyptian parliamentarian can puff out his cheeks and say anything, not paying him the bills. The Arab sheikhs will decide what to buy, and so be it. And we'll see how it all ends. Buy, then the Saudis have become even more dissatisfied with the United States.
