CAIRO – 11 December 2017: Russian media celebrated the front page banner headline written in Arabic and Russian by one of the biggest newspapers in Egypt, Youm7, in tandem with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to Cairo on Monday.
The headline read, “Mr. President, when will Russian tourism to Egypt resume?” preceded by a welcome statement.
The Russian Information Agency (RIA) Novosti reported that Youm7 allocated a whole page for the visit, focusing on the cooperation in the field of energy and the Dabaa nuclear power plant, which is the biggest bilateral project between Egypt and Russia.
In his second official visit to Egypt since President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi assumed power in 2014, Putin will discuss ways of enhancing the bilateral relations between both countries and witness the signing of Dabaa Station contracts between Rosatom and the Egyptian Ministry of Electricity and Energy.
Both leaders will attend the inauguration of Egypt's first nuclear power plant, which is located at the Mediterranean city of Dabaa in Marsa Matrouh, Egyptian Minister of Electricity Mohamed Shaker told Egypt Today.
A Russian delegation consisting of 35 officials arrived in Cairo on Thursday to prepare for Putin's visit to the capital, according to security forces at Cairo International Airport.
On September 5, Sisi invited Putin to attend the final signing ceremony of the Dabaa plant in Egypt, and Putin announced that he accepted the invitation. Prime Minister Sherif Ismail announced that the foundation stone of the Dabaa nuclear power plant will be laid soon.
In February 2015, the Russian president visited Egypt and attended the signing of a number of deals between Cairo and Moscow.
