Hosni Mubarak will meet with top Russian officials to discuss broader trade and economic cooperation, including in the energy sector, Egyptian Ambassador in Moscow Ezzat Saad said.
In February, Russia and Egypt opened a joint car-making plant near Cairo, the Egyptian capital, to assemble 3,300 Russian Lada cars a year. Boris Alyoshin, head of the Russian Federal Industry Agency, said the two countries might also seek to create free trade zones.
Mubarak's visit to Russia is also expected to consider Russia's proposal to construct a civilian nuclear infrastructure in Egypt, following a resumption of talks on the issue in late January.
Russia's Saltanov said Mubarak will also discuss the current critical situation in the Middle East, including in the Palestinian territories, Iraq, Lebanon and Sudan.
"Egypt is a key country in the region, and it is our major partner in the Middle East," Saltanov said. "It is very interesting for us to hear the opinion of such an authoritative politician as Hosni Mubarak."
