The war made a delegation of the Russian Agriculture Ministry put off its trip to Cairo. The experts were to handle formalities related to the agreement, under which Russia was to supply Egypt with 1 to 1.5 million tons of grain annually for the next five years.

Things will be settled and the agreement will be signed in the near future, according to the source. According to the agreement, Egypt will pay the sum in money and by supplying potatoes, onions, vegetables and fruit to Russia.
