The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held talks in Moscow with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry to discuss relations between the two countries and the crisis in Ukraine.
Sputnik brings you a live broadcast as Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry hold a joint press conference after talks in Moscow on Tuesday, 31 January.
The ministers are expected to have discussed a broad range of issues both local and international.
The previous meeting between Lavrov and Shoukry took place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in September 2022, when they discussed the implementation of the grain deal. The Egyptian foreign minister has previously visited Russia in October 2021.
In July 2022, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the United Nations struck a deal to provide a humanitarian maritime corridor for ships with food and fertilizer exports from Ukrainian Black Sea ports. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly said that most of the ships carrying Ukrainian grain did not make it to the world's poorest countries and ended up in Europe.
