"[The financing] will either be through government loans or loans from state-run commercial banks," Rachid said after the talks in Cairo with Russian Trade and Industry Minister Viktor Khristenko.

Rachid said Russia had also offered to help construct and maintain the plant.

"We welcome such proposals from Russia," the minister said.
