CAIRO – 26 June 2018: Egypt’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Mohamed Idris, proposed on Tuesday to hold a conference to establish a nuclear-weapon-free zone, in which countries of the region and permanent members of the Security Council would participate.
The Egyptian delegate's proposal came in his speech to the Security Council at its meeting, held upon a Russian request in New York City.
The Egyptian delegate said that countries need to commit to principles and targets of the United Nations to achieve security, respect the sovereignty of all states, and refrain from the use of violence.
Idris also said that all the regional countries must condemn terrorism in all its forms and cooperate to combat it.
In the last period, Egypt called on the United Nations to discuss several issues, including Syria's situation, where the UN envoy stressed in his meeting with President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi earlier in June the importance of the role Egypt plays in the Middle East as one of the pillars of stability in the region.
He pointed out his aspiration to boost coordination and consultation with Egypt in the coming period, especially in light of Egypt's regional and international importance that enables it to play a key role in resolving the crisis in Syria.
