Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al- Sisi today held talks in Cairo with Russia's foreign and defence ministers on ways to battle "terrorism"، presidency office said.

A statement said the talks with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu focused on "the struggle against terrorism" and bilateral cooperation.


Lavrov earlier discussed the situation in chaos-riddled Libya with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry، the foreign ministry in Cairo said.

Rival administrations and militias have been fighting for control of oil-rich Libya since the 2011 NATO-backed uprising that toppled and killed veteran dictator Moamer Kadhafi.

Egypt's neighbour has also been a breeding and training ground for jihadists، including the Islamic State group.
