Military cooperation between Moscow and Cairo is steadily expanding, reports Interfax Statement by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.




There is a steady positive trend in the expansion of military cooperation. We note with satisfaction the desire of Egypt to equip the national armed forces with modern weapons and military equipment of Russian production,
the minister said during talks with his Egyptian counterpart Sedka Sobhi.

Shoigu noted that Moscow “is interested in Cairo’s leading position in strengthening regional security and stability.”

In bilateral relations, we see clear progress,
he stated.

According to the minister, Russia “highly appreciates the desire of the Egyptian leadership to develop comprehensive relations between the two countries, including in the military field, as well as Cairo’s constructive position on the main security issues in the Middle East and North Africa.”

He called “An important element of cooperation” regular ministerial meetings in the “two plus two” format, within which “the military and diplomats of Russia and Egypt have a unique opportunity to“ check hours ”on topical issues of bilateral cooperation.”

We aim to further develop and increase the cooperation of military departments in all areas of mutual interest to us,
stated Shoigu.

Earlier it was reported that Russia and Egypt have a package of contracts in the field of military-technical cooperation for about $ 3,5 billion, signed in 2014 year. Contracts involve the supply of Cairo Russian air defense systems, artillery, small weaponsand aviation. So, this year about 20 Ka-52 helicopters will be delivered to Egypt. Last year, a batch of 15 helicopters was handed over. In total, Cairo ordered 46 Alligators.

In addition, the Russian government approved the draft intergovernmental agreement with Egypt on the procedure for the use of airspace and the airfield infrastructure of the two countries submitted by the Ministry of Defense in November 2017.

    Egypt still has a memory of relations with the USSR. Still produce our "Lada",
    many remember the Russian language and study in the USSR. And hundreds of thousands of them studied with us, in all sectors.

      What about MiGs? In December 2017, they wrote about the transfer of the “next installment”. Order is being executed

    What does “about 20” mean if only 46, 15 are transmitted? Humanities.

      I do not understand what the problem is. Earlier they transferred 15, this year they are going to transfer about 20, how many will be in time. And in total 46 will be transferred. Or problems with mathematics?

      Duc is nowhere clearer written ... In the past (2017) year, 15 helicopters were transferred. In this (2018), they plan to transfer about 20 (apparently plus or minus). The remaining 11 (46 minus 15 minus 20), most likely, according to the plan for 2019. hi

    Air defense, aviation, Mistral and other military equipment, Egypt slowly builds muscle, trains personnel for new modern weapons. I wonder what and who bothers Egypt. Probably the activation of terrorists, and possibly the presence of aggressive neighbors who strive for a crazier, "toad jumping", bite off other people's territories.

    And you google who paid them Mistral and everything will become clear. A big mess will be there soon.

    In addition to weapons, Russia has nothing to offer Egypt. Yes, they do not really need it, because they are useless warriors. True, there is still grain and the ability to build a nuclear power plant. But this is already so much that the head begins to spin.
