CAIRO – 11 November 2017: Thousands of Twitter users are responding to the hashtag #FightingTerrorismHumanRight, derived from Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi’s opening speech in the World Youth Forum (WYF) hosted in Sharm el-Sheikh. The hashtag expressed support for Egypt’s efforts in countering terrorism.

During his speech, Sisi started with enthusiastic words about the country’s war against terrorism and extremism, which threaten all humanity.

“Terrorism violates and destroys our human nature. The fight against terrorism is a right to humanity,” the president stated.

A large set of politicians, writers and public figures used the hashtag to show their support for the president’s suggestion.

The first round of the WYF was held under the theme “We Need to Talk” with the participation of 222 speakers and 3,200 youths from 113 different nationalities.

The forum discussed many key issues related to youth, such as counterterrorism, refugees, illegal immigration, sustainable development, technology and entrepreneurship, the role of arts and culture in the face of conflicts and wars, and youth rehabilitation.
