Cairo: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said Tuesday that Russia had agreed to jointly build his country`s first nuclear power plant.

A memorandum of understanding was signed Tuesday in the presence of Sisi and visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin.

At a joint press conference with Putin, Sisi said the nuclear power plant would be built in Dabaa in northwest Egypt on the Mediterranean coast.
