Russian military delegation visits Cairo

A 19-member Russian military delegation arrived at Cairo International Airport on Wednesday morning, making this the third visit of its kind in less than two months.
The delegation will meet with Egyptian military officials, according to an airport security source who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The visits came after Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi's trip to Russia, which was meant to boost bilateral military relations.
Political experts say Sisi’s visit also came to diversify Egypt's sources of armament and to seek Russia's support for the Egyptian government's fight against terrorism.
In November 2013, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had also visited Egypt.
