Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry received, on Tuesday, a phone call from his US counterpart Antony Blinken. Blinken said that he looks to strengthening the Egyptian-US historic partnership.
The Secretary and the Foreign Minister highlighted the importance of the strong strategic partnership between the United States and Egypt, particularly in security and ongoing counterterrorism cooperation, and exchanged views on regional issues.
Blinken and Shoukry also discussed supporting UN-facilitated peace negotiations in Libya, the Middle East Peace Process, and counterterrorism cooperation in the Sinai.
He added that the Egypt-US shared security interests must align with respect for democracy and human rights, and a strong civil society.
