CAIRO - 11 November 2017: Egypt always rejects military solutions in addressing issues of countries, and constantly supports their territorial integrity, Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady told a TV channel on Friday.

"Egypt backs the Arab national armies and always rebuffs militias," the spokesman said in remarks to Sada ElBalad TV channel's Moustafa Bakry.

He stresses President Abdel Fattah El Sisi's firm stand on supporting citizenship principles.

As for the outcome of the World Youth Forum (WYF) that wrapped up its activities on Thursday, the presidential spokesman said it conveyed an important message, which is urgency to combat extremism.

He said "we are in a dire need to support youth. It's necessary to integrate them into the decision-making process".

"This was President Sisi's recommendation at the conclusion of the forum," he added.
