Russia’s active participation in EDEX 2018 (Egypt Defense Expo) shows a high level of relations between both countries, Egyptian Minister of Military Production Mohamed Al Asar told TASS on the third and final day of the exhibition.

"Russia’s participation is in full accordance with the high level of our relations that have a strategic nature, are known to be privileged in the area of politics and in the relations between both countries’ governments," he said. "I am personally convinced that Russia’s presence at this exhibition fully reflects that."

"Our relations develop on a daily basis in all spheres, and I think we shouldn’t be talking now about any concrete achievements, about what happened and what will happen," the minister stated. "However, I would like to repeat myself: we are constantly developing relations in the area of military production and military-technical cooperation."

The Egyptian official added that there exists a special Russian-Egyptian commission, which deals with issues of cooperation in military production between both countries.
