CAIRO: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi will make a visit to Moscow sometime during August, an informed source told Youm7 Friday.

The source added that the visit would be for addressing bilateral cooperation between Russia and Egypt and boosting economic, political and military cooperation.

Sisi visited Russia in February when he was still defense minister to discuss weapons deals valued at $2 billion according to the Russian news agency Novosti.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the time he supported Sisi’s candidacy for president. Sisi eventually won with a landslide victory in June.

A high-ranking Egyptian military delegation flew to Moscow in June to also discuss military cooperation, which followed a Russian military delegation visit to Cairo in May.
