The head of Russia's military intelligence agency arrived in Cairo on Monday for talks with Egyptian officials, security sources at Cairo International Airport said.

During his three-day visit, Viackeslav Kondraskou is expected to meet with a host of Egyptian officials – including some from the army – to discuss recent developments in the Middle East region, the sources said.

An Egyptian military official had earlier said that the army planned to diversify the source of its armaments, adding that Russia was being considered as a possible new source of advanced weaponry after Washington decided to freeze some of its annual military assistance to Egypt.
