The Russian minister also delivered to El-Sisi a message of condolence from Russian president Vladimir Putin over Friday's terrorist attacks on a mosque in North Sinai, where 311 people were killed.

Shoigu also met with defence minister Sedky Sobhi as part of the fourth meeting in Cairo of the joint Russian-Egyptian commission for military and technical cooperation, according to the Ministry of Defense.
