President Sisi asserted that Russian investments have a big opportunity in Egypt.

The Russian prime minister expressed appreciation for Egypt at the popular and official levels, added the spokesman.
He also lauded the economic reform program that was launched by the Egyptian government, said the spokesman.
The Russian premier hailed Egypt's efforts for establishing stability in the Middle East and fighting terrorism, added the spokesman.
