On August 31, first President of Kalmykia, sixth President of FIDE Kirsan Ilyumzhinov arrived on a working visit to Cairo, where he met with the Vice President for Strategic Projects of Egypt, Lieutenant General Mohab Mamish at the presidential palace.

Incidentally, in August 2015, at the opening of the New Suez Canal connecting the Mediterranean and Red Seas, Mohab Mamish uttered wonderful words. “The Egyptian people are rewriting history,” he said at the lavish ceremony commemorating the canal’s opening. "If the people long for life, then destiny must respond."

During the business conversation, which was attended by members of the government and representatives of the Egyptian business community, opportunities for the implementation of a number of promising economic projects were discussed.

Then Ilyumzhinov met with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russia to Egypt Georgy Borisenko.
