  • Description

    The Soviet Defence Minister, Marshal Andrei Grechko, arrived in Cairo on Friday (18 Feb) for what is officially described as a "short official visit to Egypt".

    Marshal Grechko was met at the airport by Egypt's War Minister, General Mohamed Ahmed Sadek -- and it's expected the two men will discuss military aid.

    Among topics likely for discussion is the recent United States decision to help Israel manufacture American-designed military equipment.

    Soon after his arrival, Marshal Grechko placed a wreath on the tomb of the late President Nasser.
