CAIRO, Sept 29 (MENA) - Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry Ahmed Hafez has hailed the International Court of Justice (ICJ's) verdict on Egypt's right to exercise its sovereignty over Taba as a diplomatic and legal victory.
On his Twitter account, the spokesman on Sunday said the ICJ's ruling is a culmination of the Armed Forces' sacrifices to restore Sinai.
On December 29,1988, the ICJ ruled that Egypt had the right to exercise its sovereignty over Taba.
