Egypt-Serbia: Fight against terrorism

27 February, 15:53

    (ANSAmed) - BELGRADE, 27 FEBRUARY - The Ambassador of Egypt to Serbia Menha Mahrous Bakhoum has said that the big "Egypt Economic Development Conference", to take place next month in Sharm el-Sheik, will be an opportunity for further improvement of already excellent relations between Serbia and Egypt.

    The Egyptian ambassador recalled that, a few days ago, she spoke with the Prime Minister of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, about preparations for this economic summit, at which, as she said, the presence of Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic is expected.

    One of the topics discussed with Vucic were the efforts for combating threats by ISIS in Libya, and as the ambassador said, the Serbian prime minister condemned the attacks on Egyptian citizens in Libya and is active at many levels in providing support of Serbia for the fight against "Daesh" (Arabic for ISIS) and terrorist groups in Libya.

    The ambassador of Egypt reminded that two weeks ago the Islamic State published a video footage showing the beheading of 21 Egyptians in Sirte, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

    "It was a barbaric act of a cold-blooded beheading of 21 Egyptians, just because of their faith," she emphasized.
