CAIRO: Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Egypt on December 11 to meet his counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the Egyptian president's office said on Thursday.

Putin has close ties with Sisi and had previously visited Egypt in 2015.

Russia has sold arms to Egypt and is helping the North African country's first nuclear plant.

"During the visit, the two presidents will hold talks on ways to further advancing frameworks of bilateral cooperation across various areas, particularly political, economic and trade relations," the presidency said in its statement.

Several months after Putin's last visit, Russia suspended air travel to Egypt after Daesh bombed a Russian airliner carrying holidaymakers from a Red Sea resort, killing all 224 people on board.
