The institute aims to train personnel for the first nuclear power plant in El Dabaa, which is being built with Russia's participation.
"Now there is a dialogue, a fundamental decision has been made to open a MEPhI branch in Egypt. This is connected with the construction of a nuclear power plant," Mogilevsky said on Monday.
In the same vein, Egypt’s Petroleum and Mineral Resources Minister Tarek El Molla revealed that the Arab Republic will announce three tenders this year for oil and gas exploration and production projects.
