MOSCOW, September 4 /TASS/. Russia and Egypt have pledged to cooperate in efforts to create a zone free from nuclear weapons and other WMD in the Middle East, the Russian Foreign Ministry said after consultations with an Egyptian delegation led by Egypt’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hisham Badr.
The agenda included a wide range of non-proliferation and arms control issues.
"The sides paid special attention to prevention of arms race in space; reform of the IAEA mandate and the two countries’ interaction in these directions, which are crucially important for both countries," the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
"The participants in the consultations confirmed the importance of a resolution on the Middle East adopted at the 1995 NPT Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons," the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.
"They stated their intention to maintain close cooperation in the interests of creating a zone free from nuclear weapons and other WMD in the Middle East," the ministry said.
The two countries’ interaction at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and at the 59th IAEA General Conference was also part of the agenda.
