CAIRO – 12 July 2020: The Egyptian permanent mission at the United Nations participated in the UN’s virtual counter-terrorism week, held from 6 to 10 July.

Egypt’s representative at the UN ambassador Mohammed Idris said during the virtual meeting that the countries involved in transporting mercenaries and terrorists from one conflict to another should abort this behavior, adding that Egypt is ready to cooperate with the different international players to counter-terrorism and extremism. Idris asserted that the Coronavirus pandemic revealed the importance of international cooperation in order to stop biological and cyber terrorism, aside from other forms of terrorism such as racist and hate speeches. Idris said that the seventh biennial review of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy provides an opportunity for the member states to reassure their commitment to counter the changeable terrorism in the international arena.
