MEA Risk issued a brief note on what it expects Egypt’s security outlook will be as a result of the killing of 21 of its nationals in Libya. MEA Risk says despite a dismal financial situation, Egypt is not hesitating to increase its debt to buy all sorts of military equipment. France, Russia, the United States and lately Italy have been courting Egypt to up their sales to Egypt of offensive and defensive equipment, including naval units. The visit of Russia’s Putin to Cairo and his handing over of a Kalashnikov to Sissi are not even symbolic gestures to signal Moscow’s interest in selling weapons. They are a direct invitation to buy.
