The Deputy Foreign Minister for African Affairs, Hamdi Sanad Loza, reiterated Egypt’s continuous support to the African Sahel region countries on both bilateral and regional levels.
Loza’s remarks came during Coalition for the Sahel’s second ministerial meeting, held virtually on Saturday.
Addressing the participants, Loza stressed Egypt’s interest in the Sahel region’s issues, a matter evidently proved after it included such issues in the agenda of Aswan forum, held on March 1-5.
During the meeting, the Sahel region’s roadmap for fighting terrorism was endorsed in a move that aims at reinforcing the military capabilities of the regional countries’ armies and other national institutions.
