Further inspections of Cairo Airport are unnecessary -Sokolov

And speaking of the Russians, they seem to have finally been satisfied with our airport security (took y’all long enough). Further security inspections of Cairo International Airport are not necessary, Russian Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov told TASS. But as Russian officials are not ones to leave a conversation on a high, he added that the resumption of flights between Russia and Egypt “depends on the government’s decision.” Sokolov had said earlier this week that Russian aviation security experts “positively assessed” security at the airport.

Coincidentally (pronunciation: sɑː(r)ˈkæstɪkli) the about face on our airport security came just as President El Sisi and Putin appeared to have sealed the final contracts on Dabaa (minus the actual signing) at the BRICS Summit. The Ismail cabinet confirmed yesterday that the contracts for the Dabaa nuclear power plant agreement have been finalized and approved, according to Ahram Gate. The contracts were revised by the Council of State (Maglis Al Dawla), Prime Minister Sherif Ismail said, confirming earlier reports. What remains is the contract for the nuclear power plant’s fuel, which Ismail says is in its final stages.
