Interaction between Moscow and Cairo in the energy sphere is important, Russian President Vladimir Putin said after talks with President of Egypt Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, TASS reports.
"We discussed in detail issues of bilateral interaction in the energy sector," the Russian President said after talks. "The key joint project in this sphere is construction of a nuclear power plant of the Russian design in Egypt by Rosatom," Putin said. "Preparatory activities started on the site. Contracts with Egyptian companies intended to be proactively engaged as subcontractors are planned to be signed by the year-end," he noted.
