CAIRO: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi met Tuesday with Spanish Minister of Defense Pedro Morenes, who is visiting Cairo with a military delegation for three days, Youm7 reported.
Morenes and his delegation will meet with their Egyptian counterparts to review bilateral ties and regional and international issues of mutual concern.
In October 2015, Egyptian Defense Minister Sedki Sobhi visited Madrid for three days to bolster military cooperation and sign a memorandum of understanding on joint military exercises. Morenes paid Egypt a three-day visit in May to enhance cooperation between the two countries.
President Sisi visited Spain in April where both countries signed a security cooperation agreement that regulates bilateral cooperation in the field of security and combating crime.
