CAIRO – 13 November 2017: Chief of Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee MP Tarek Radwan met on Monday with Greece’s ambassador to Egypt Michael Christos in Cairo, where Radwan warmly welcomed the ambassador and emphasized deeply-rooted ties between Egypt and Greece.
Christos proposed to exchange parliamentary visits between the two countries to bolster mutual ties, a suggestion warmly received by Radwan.
The Greek ambassador reiterated his state’s full support for Egypt in its war against terrorism, adding that Egypt is fighting terrorism on behalf of the whole world. Greece firmly believes that Egypt’s stability and its triumph in combating terrorism is crucial to the stability of the whole region, including Europe, otherwise the region would face serious waves of terror and illegal immigration.
“Egypt does not only fight terrorism, but also undergoes the challenge of building up its infrastructure, including provision of clean water, sanitation, electricity, as well as proper education for areas which lack these facilities,” Radwan said in a press release, adding that “Egypt will not accept a pre-prepared list by other countries to be imposed, as Egypt has its own troubles requiring suitable solutions that suit the Egyptian environment.”
The two officials have reviewed situations in the Middle East, as well as Egypt’s efforts to maintain stability in the region.
Egypt has been facing a war against terrorism since former President Muhammed Morsi was ousted on June 3, 2013.
