Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi met on Saturday with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit in the Japanese city of Osaka.

During the meeting, El-Sisi said that Egypt is looking forward to strengthening Egyptian-Russian relations on all levels, praising the key joint projects carried out in Egypt, including the Dabaa nuclear power plant and the under-construction Russian industrial zone at the Suez Canal Axis, said Egypt’s presidential spokesman Bassam Rady.

Putin affirmed the importance his country attaches to developing relations with Egypt during the coming period within the framework of strategic partnership and cooperation between the two countries, the spokesman added.

Prospects of three-way cooperation between Egypt, Russia and Africa, in light of Egypt's current presidency of the African Union, were reviewed by the two leaders, the spokesman added.
