PARIS – 24 October 2017: French President Emmanuel Macron said Egypt’s fight against terrorism is one of three important facts that should “never be forgotten” when talking about human rights in Egypt, during a joint press conference Tuesday in Paris.
In response to a question about human rights status in Egypt, Macron assured he is keen on not interfering in other countries’ internal affairs, saying, “I do not accept getting comments from others on how I govern my country so I would not do that to others countries.”
He highlighted that Egypt has “achieved much” in terms of human rights record despite facing challenges.
He added that “combating terror is the ultimate preservation of human rights.”
