Russia’s ambassador to Egypt said Moscow and Cairo are sharing information, as well as training staff, in counter-terrorism efforts.
Russian and Egyptian militaries are regularly coordinating their efforts in the fight against terrorism by sharing information and training staff and delivering specialized technology, Russian Ambassador to Egypt Sergei Kirpichenko said.
“There is solid coordination between our militaries. That’s all I can say at the moment. There is serious joint understanding in these conditions and obviously in regard to exchanging information there is also tight cooperation, which is of a regular character for sure,” Kirpichenko told RIA Novosti in an interview.
The ambassador said that the exchange of information is not the only cooperation between the two countries in the fight against terrorism and includes anti-terror training.
“We cooperate in counter-terrorism issues on a multilateral cooperation of exchanging information, training staff, and delivering so to speak anti-terrorist technology and this involves not two or four, but more organs. The Egyptians are very interested in this and we completely understand their interest,” Kirpichenko said.
