So far, those potential buyers pointed to France - refused to buy.
Maybe Egypt also does not know anything about buying a Mistral.
While the equipment is removed from them, France could offer to everyone you meet, but the last word for the buyer, who will announce the price.
And the price certainly will not be the kind offered - Russia.
