Egypt, Pakistan eager to deepen cooperation in many areas including defense

Egypt and Pakistan Sunday contemplated plans to strengthen bilateral relations including defense between the two countries, nearly one month holding joint military drill.
President Abdelfattah al-Sisi and Pakistani Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Chairman Gen. Nadeem Raza discussed “strengthening bilateral cooperation between the two countries in a number of fields, especially the security and military fields,” Anadolu news agency reports citing the office of the Egyptian leader.
The discussion according to the office also revolved around developments across the Middle East and agreed to coordinate to preserve regional peace and combat terrorism.
Raza’s Sunday visit to Cairo came several days after both countries held joint military drills. The air forces of both countries staged on May 26 a several-day military exercise dubbed “Sky Guardians 1”.
