SOCHI, August 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has arrived in Russia on his first official visit. His plane landed in Sochi Tuesday morning. At the boarding ramp, al-Sisi was welcomed by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
After the welcome ceremony, al-Sisi left for the mountain cluster, where he will join Russian President Vladimir Putin for a tour of Olympic facilities.
Later in the day, the presidents will hold talks at the Russian presidential residence Bocharov Ruchei. The Kremlin’s press service said Putin and al-Sisi will focus on trade and economic relations,as well as on regional and international affairs.
The Kremlin said that “the approaches of the two countries to settling crises in the Middle East are largely similar". Both countries are certain about the need for ending violence in Gaza, settling the crises in Libya, Syria and Iraq, and presenting a common front to international terrorism.
“Further coordination by the two countries’ efforts on the international arena will be on the agenda,” the Kremlin’s press service said. “The two leaders may touch upon ways of enhancing humanitarian ties as well.”
High on the agenda is a program for cooperation in culture, education and science between the governments of Russia and Egypt and also such a major sphere as tourism.
