Egypt and Russia are edging closer as Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi announced that the Russians would help in the construction of the country’s first nuclear power plant.

According to the Egyptian President, who was holding a press conference at Al-Qubba Presidential Palace, Cairo and Moscow have “signed a memorandum of understanding to build the first nuclear plant in El-Dabaa.”

At the press conference, the two leaders stressed the importance of strengthening military relations between the two countries and combatting terrorism.

President Putin declared that “terrorism does not stop at borders,” stressing the importance of continuing the international fight against terrorism.

The leaders also vowed to continue fighting for the Palestinian cause, with Sisi stressing that a two-state solution is necessary.

President Putin is in Cairo on a two day visit aimed at boosting bilateral relations between Cairo and Moscow.

    Russia helping in building a nuclear plant makes it really easy to believe that there are some hidden agreement maybe. I hope this plant solves the power shortage though…

    • Foamaniac

      It takes 5-7 years to build a Nuclear plant, by then there will be no such thing as power in Egypt ..

      • Kareem Gamal

        I hope there are any plans in progress to address this (I doubt) seems like we’re gonna have really ugly summers.

        On the bright side, more star gazing for everyone. 😀

        • Foamaniac

          Oh man, I don’t even remember the last time I saw the stars lol .. So much pollution in the air to see anything up there ..
