The statement also added that the deal was approved to meet the country’s urgent oil requirements, as Egypt imports petroleum products worth US$1bn to US$1.3bn a month.

An Oil Ministry official added that in August 2014, Egypt was seeking to buy US$9bn of oil products from the UAE and some of the oil products may have come as grants to the country.
