Gurulev stressed that “Egyptian specialists will visit a number of Goscomvoyenprom companies where they will be able to assess… the capabilities” of the industry. He stressed that during the visits it would be possible to explore the prospects for cooperation “taking into account the needs of the Egyptian side and learn how our country develops the defence industry.” For his part, Mr. Mohamed Al Assar thanked the Belarusian side for the warm welcome and noted that in January 2017 Belarus and Egypt had agreed to establish bilateral production cooperation with the use of Belarusian technologies and experience.
