CAIRO - 23 April 2019: President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi stressed Tuesday that boosting human rights is one of the most important national priorities according to the vision of Egypt 2030, according to a statement issued by presidential spokesperson Bassam Rady.

This came during his meeting with Chairperson of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights Soyata Maiga.

President Sisi reviewed the huge developments and efforts undertaken by the state in recent years to improve the economic, social and living standards, especially in slum eradication and the provision of adequate housing for about 1 million slum residents.

Sisi also referred to the campaigns aiming to eliminate virus C and end patient waiting lists, pointing out to the efforts exerted in the education sector, which is witnessing unprecedented modernization.

This is in addition to the peerless efforts exerted by the government to enhance social protection programs and support and empower women, youth and people with special needs.

The president highlighted the achievements of the state in spreading the culture of citizenship and religious tolerance and underscored the services provided by the state to the millions from different nationalities who have been displaced to Egypt due to their political and security circumstances.

At the end of the meeting, Sisi asserted that all these efforts come within the common framework of human rights in accordance with the relevant United Nations charters.

For her part, Maiga expressed appreciation of Egypt's hosting of the commission's session, affirming Egypt's central role at the African level to advance human rights across the continent, especially in light of Egypt's current presidency of the African Union (AU).
