    Joint tactical exercises of the Airborne Forces (Airborne Forces) of Russia and the paratrooper troops of the Armed Forces of Egypt will be held in 2018

    Good deal, there is something to share with each other.
    Our tactics, the Egyptians, are their database skills in the desert.
    There are none, but there are nuances on every theater and it’s never too late to study these nuances in practice good

      The term "protection of friendship" smacks of coercion to such. According to this logic, it would be necessary to prescribe the conditions of a divorce, such as through a registry office or a court. lol

    There, it is necessary to carry out exercises with customs at airports in order to teach the Arabs that they wouldn’t be lazy to plant bombs on planes past them and not to drag the airborne forces. All the same, Israel will not win. It has been tested more than once already — the USSR spent all its strength and money on the wind them ...

      The aviation security service is responsible for the security of airports, customs - for the customs clearance of goods hi
      I’ll tell you a secret - our fellow citizens responsible for security must also be driven up to the seventh sweat so that they do not lose their scent. Egyptian Airport Security Issues Not Only Egyptians request

      Not customs, but special services. Egypt is not in a war with Israel. Who checked, you personally? The fact that Egypt at the expense of the army was able to withstand a hybrid war is already normal

        They designed the largest hydroelectric power station in Africa.
        And then Egypt with its Aswan Dam and the remnants of water in ...

        It is difficult to understand the intricacies, but still it can clarify this issue a little from this side. I do not insist, but as an option:
        An Al-Watan article stated that the Directorate-General of Intelligence and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Egypt had long warned Mursi of the Ethiopians' possible move, and urged him to take immediate political action.
        According to Al-Watan, Egyptian intelligence believes that the main sponsor of the dam is Israel, which managed to build a system of relations with all countries of the Nile basin.
        This alliance is directly directed against Egypt, and therefore further negotiations with Ethiopia are meaningless. Egyptian intelligence believes that Israel is behind the escalation in the construction of the dam, and demands to take a "firm position" - in relation to Ethiopia, and in relation to Israel.
        Both from the point of view of Israel and from the point of view of Ethiopia, it is more about cooperation in the energy sector. - Israel receives an additional, and very powerful lever of pressure on Egypt.
        Ethiopians hope that an Israeli presence alone will be enough to prevent the Egyptians from taking “rash” actions.
        Africans regard Egypt as a “political corpse” (along with its allied Sudan) and believe that the time has come when they can simply ignore the interests of the once powerful Arab neighbors, PostSkriptum writes.
        The reaction of Saudi Arabia unexpectedly followed.
        The Deputy Minister of Defense of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Prince Khalid bin Sultan, paid an official visit to Cairo. The prince took part in the meetings of the "Arab Water Committee" and attacked the Ethiopians with scathing criticism.
        The prince said that the “Great Dam of the Ethiopian Renaissance” will have flood flows of 70 billion cubic meters - at an altitude of 700 meters. If for some reason it collapses, the capital of Sudan - Khartoum - will be completely flooded, and the consequences of the catastrophe will be felt far downstream of the Nile - even in the Aswan area.

          When the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Islamists, came to power in Egypt, Israel sought rapprochement with the Ethiopians. Now in Egypt there is a military junta that suits us. But Ethiopia (and groups of neighboring countries that are going to buy electricity from Ethiopians) have their own strategic interests. They do not care who is in power in Egypt. Therefore, there is no "sinister conspiracy" of Israel against Egypt. But whoever we get close to, the other side will be offended.

    They climb with friendship only when they need something from us. Then they throw themselves into the arms of the Americans. In general, everything is as always: Moscow - Beijing, Moscow - Beijing. The nations go forward! (Russian folk song.) And then Bach! Damansky. The same with these. Assuan was built, built by him, and then they pretended to be "who is he this victim? Where did he go? I see him for the first time!"
