MOSCOW, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian-Egyptian two-on-two talks give an opportunity to coordinate positions on topical issues of international and regional agenda, visiting Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said at the beginning of a meeting with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov here on Thursday.
“I would like to thank you for an opportunity to visit Moscow to continue talks and consultations in two-on-two format,” Fahmy told Lavrov. “Russian hospitality is sufficient reason as it is for this visit, but I would like also to note that this format of talks involving the foreign and defence ministers reflects fully positions of negotiating parties on regional and international issues,” he noted.
Fahmy noted that Egypt and Russia have many issues, which should be discussed at talks on Thursday, including international problems, primarily the situation in the Middle East as well as different aspects of bilateral relations, including ties in trade and economic, cultural and humanitarian spheres and development of military-technical cooperation. “I will not be too modest to say that international community is following keenly our visit,” Fahmy added.
The Egyptian foreign minister also noted that ongoing meetings in Moscow “reflect Egypt’s support to Russia’s position over preserving stability in the region of the Middle East and North Africa and averting attempts at destabilising the situation.” “We are interested to continue consultations at expert level,” Fahmy noted at the end of his speech.
