Egypt's military production minister Mohamed El-Assar met with Cypriot Defense Minister Christoforos Fokaides in Cairo to discuss the ministry's potential for military production, state news agency MENA reported on Thursday, citing a statement from the ministry.

El-Assar discussed with Fokaides ways to utilise Egypt's military production capabilities to enhance relations between the two countries, the statement read.

Fokaides complimented the capabilities and experience of military production companies in Egypt, affirming his wish to bolster cooperation between the two sides, the ministry added.

Fokaides, who is currently on a multi-day visit to Egypt, met on Wednesday with both President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Defence Minister Sedki Sobhi to discuss military cooperation and the latest developments in the Middle East.

Last year, Sobhi and Fokaides signed a joint military cooperation agreement on fighting terrorism and combating the migrant crisis.
