Egyptian President Abd El Fattah El Sisi was among the few, around 30, world leaders to be invited to the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Russian victory over the German armed forces in WWII. The President arrived in Moscow on May 8, to attend a dinner with the other heads of state, and attended the celebrations that took place in the Red Square, a central square in Moscow where the Kremlin is located. It is interesting to note that El Sisi was the only Arab leader to be invited to the commemoration, which suggests the return of a strong friendship between Egypt and Russia.
