CAIRO, January 13. /TASS/. Egypt supports the actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry who is paying a visit to Berlin said in an interview with the DPA news agency published on Wednesday.
"We believe in Russia’s ability to tell terrorist organizations from other targets," he said. The minister also noted that this stance "was not the exclusive right of the international anti-terrorist coalition, which includes the United States, Germany and which Egypt has joined."
Speaking about the recent contracts with Russia on arms supplies, Shoukry pointed to "the existing strategic partnership between Egypt and the United States." "There is no alternative to US military aid to Egypt. However, we need to diversify our relations," he said.
