"The upcoming consultations are expected to center round the situation in the Middle East and North Africa with a focus on the Syrian and Libyan crises، the situation in Sudan، problems of security in the Gulf region، the Middle East settlement، anti-terrorism efforts and issues of non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction،" the ministry said.

"Apart from that، the ministers will discuss the state of affairs in the key areas of the comprehensive Russian-Egyptian cooperation and will outline the goal for further development of the entire spectrum of bilateral relations."
