Russia's foreign and defence ministers have met senior Egyptian officials in Cairo for the highest level talks in decades.

They are discussing improving military cooperation and a deal on arms that could be worth as much as $2bn.

The meeting follows a US decision to cut defence aid to Egypt in response to the ousting of President Mohammed Morsi.
