Monday، 10 July 2017 - 12:00 AM
Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry headed to Côte d’Ivoire to take part in the 44th session of the Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
The CFM meeting - to convene on July 10-11 - will tackle regional crises as well as the organization's role in combating terrorism and extremist thoughts.
The current session of the OIC acquires a special importance in view of the critical phase the Islamic world is facing, as the threats and challenges have become on the rise whether from inside or outside.
The OIC foreign ministers meeting will discuss a set of important issues topped by regional crises, the role of the OIC in confronting the extremist and terrorist thoughts along with means of not only facing terrorist attacks but the parties which provide with financial or logistic support as well.
The Islamic pivot in Egypt's foreign policy is very important as Egypt is keen on enhancing mechanisms of joint Islamic action.
Egypt also aims to enhance the role of the Islamic Bank for Development (IDB) in Africa and central Asia and the need for activating the role of the OIC through a clear vision to support its general secretariat.
