Egypt’s Defence Minister Sedki Sobhi and his Spanish counterpart Pedro de Morenés signed a memorandum of understanding on military cooperation on Tuesday in Cairo, according to Egyptian military spokesperson Mohamed Samir’s Facebook page.
The memorandum included the “exchange of experience” and “joint training” between both countries, according to the Facebook post.
A number of officials, including Egyptian army chief of staff Mahmoud Hegazy, attended the Tuesday meeting.
