House Speaker Ali Abdel Aal stressed the importance of the Egyptian experiment in fighting terrorism which proved that extremism, whether it is violent or non-violent, will eventually lead to terrorism.
Abdel Aal was speaking on Monday 5/2/2018 at the first meeting of the High Level Advisory Group on Counter-Terrorism of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Geneva.
The meeting touched on a number of topics, mainly the joint action plan between the IPU and United Nations concerning boosting the role of the parliamentarians in fighting terrorism.
Abdel Aal pointed to Egypt's success in fighting terrorism, thanks to laws issued in this regard.
The High Level Advisory Group aims to boost cooperation between the national parliaments, organize capacity-building programs for parliaments on counter-terrorism and determine the best practices for lawmakers.
