Reportedly, Putin and Sisi will "discuss key issues of further building up Russian-Egyptian interaction, as well as exchange views on topical issues on the international agenda," the Kremlin said in a statement.


Following the talks, a number of joint documents are expected to be signed, with no details provided.

Putin visited Cairo in December 2017, when he and Sisi witnessed the signing of an agreement to build Egypt's first nuclear power station.

Egypt was Russia's number one tourist destination before October 2015, when the crash of a Russian passenger plane in Egypt, killed all 224 people on board, mostly Russians.

Though Islamic State terrorist group claimed responsibility for this attack, bilateral ties suffered a toll.

Moscow immediately suspended all direct flights between Russia and Egypt.

Flights between the two capitals resumed earlier this year after Egypt toughened security measures in Cairo, but flights to other Egyptian cities remain closed.

Recently, Egyptian President Sisi called for a resumption of Israel-Palestinian peace talks when he met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York.
