Tigrai Online, February. 22, 2017
Deputy Director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) Alexey Frolkin stated on Monday that Russia will provide Egypt with multi-role Mikoyan MiG-29 fighter jets.
The delivery of the fighter jets will happen with the timing agreed upon between Egypt and Russia, which is specified in the importing contract that has been signed between both countries during the visit of Russian president Vladimir Putin to Egypt in February 2014, Frolkin said during the International Defense Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) held in UAE.
Meanwhile President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi Egypt’s president arrived on Saturday in Kenya in a one-day official visit. It seems the reality of the GERED has hit the Egyptians finally trying to find alternative of water sources.
