CAIRO – 26 Sept 2018: Awqaf Minister Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa said the "courageous and clear" speech delivered by President Abdel Fattah El Sisi at the United Nations General Assembly is considered an important action document for international organizations.
Sisi has underlined the Palestinians' right to establish an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, Gomaa said in a statement on Wednesday.
Gomaa underlined Egypt's firm stand to support international peace as Sisi said that Egypt is the seventh major contributor to international peace keeping operations.
He also referred to Sisi's tackling of human rights and empowering women and youths.
