El Sisi, Russian FM discuss resuming Russian flights to Red Sea

El Sisi, Russian FM discuss resuming Russian flights to Red Sea: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi discussed resuming direct Russian flights to Red Sea destinations with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who was in Cairo yesterday, according to an Ittihadiya statement. The return of the flights, still banned since the downing of a Metrojet in 2015, has been in limbo for a while due to Russian reluctance to agree to a deadline.

El Sisi called for international action to end the conflict in Libya, pledging Egyptian support for the country’s reconstruction and offering to help reunify its military.

El Sisi and Lavrov also discussed railway cooperation, as well as the planned Dabaa nuclear plant and the USD 7 bn Russian Industrial Zone (RIZ) in the Suez Canal Economic Zone.
