The current visit of Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El Sisi to Russia is considered a major step on the path of the Egyptian-Russian ties, said Russian Ambassador to Egypt Sergei Kerbachenko.

Four meetings were held within one year between Sisi and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, added the ambassador.

The visit came to foster the current strategic ties between Cairo and Moscow, he said.

The meeting between Sisi and Putin tackled all the international issues, topped by the Middle East and bilateral cooperation between the two countries in the upcoming stage, he added.

Negotiations are going on the Russian offer to establish an electricity station that will be operated by the nuclear energy in Egypt, he said.

The idea was crystallized during the Russian president’s visit to Egypt in February, he went on to say.

A number of Russian experts visited Egypt before Sisi’s visit to Russia to discuss ways of establishing the station, he noted.

The Russian investments in Egypt will not only be confined in one sphere, said the ambassador, adding that Russia is willing to take part in establishing an industrial zone in the New Suez Canal project.

He also said that the Russian experts visited several areas in Egypt, including Fayyoum, Damietta and the Suez Canal area.
