The Egyptian Foreign Ministry criticised US “reluctance” in supporting Egypt with its war against terrorism.
The Foreign Minister’s assistant for US affairs, Mohamed Farid Moneib, met Monday with a delegation of US Congress representatives’ assistants. The war on terrorism and Egypt’s democratic steps post-30 June were the main topics discussed in the meeting, according to the ministry’s statement.
Moneib asserted in the meeting Egypt’s keenness on enhancing “strategic relations” between the two countries.
However, he expressed “discomfort towards American reluctance with supporting Egypt with its war on terrorism”.
The minister’s assistant highlighted the strong relation between different terrorist organisations in the region which embrace same ideas and radical ideology and cooperate in operations.
He also said that supporting Egypt with war on terrorism will help end this phenomenon.
