Russian President Vladimir Putin will travel to Egypt on Feb. 9-10 to discuss bilateral ties as well as regional issues in the Middle East, the Kremlin said on Wednesday. Egypt, the world’s top wheat importer and the second- largest buyer of Russian wheat, has been hit by Russia’s decision to curb grain exports as Moscow seeks to cool domestic prices amid an economic crisis.
