Egypt FM Shoukry in UAE for joint Arab meeting

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry is holding talks in the United Arab Emirates with Arab counterparts as part of a consultation meeting that will focus on bolstering ties between Arab states and battling terrorism in the region.

The two-day meeting, which runs until Tuesday in Abu Dhabi, is aimed to address “improved Arab interrelationships, means to tackle crises in the Arab World and combating terrorism,” a statement by foreign ministry spokesman, Ahmed Abu Zeid, said.

The talks will take place between a number of the region’s foreign ministers, looking at ways to boost communication with “neighbouring states.”

Shoukry arrived in Abu Dhabi on Sunday from Jordan where he held days-long talks with government leaders in the kingdom.
