Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry Ahmed Hafez has warned that the infiltration of terrorists, particularly from Syria, into Libya would have serious consequences on North Africa as well as European countries.
Hafez made his statements on Thursday in the meeting of the communication cell group of the global coalition against Daesh, hosted by London.
He highlighted that extremism has spread internationally with increasing technological and organizational capabilities of terrorist groups to launch attacks worldwide.
The spokesman underscored that Egypt has adopted initiatives to combat terrorism and extremism and prevent spreading extremist ideologies by terrorist organizations, topped by Daesh, al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood group, in order to guarantee stability of the region and the world.
Hafez shed light on President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s initiative to renew religious discourse along with formation of parliamentary committees to combat terrorism and extremism amid great efforts exerted by Al Azhar, ministries of Culture and Awqaf on this score.
