Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry asserted Egypt's commitment to raising awareness in face of serious challenges besetting the region, especially terrorism, extremism, and illegal immigration, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid said on Sunday. The statement were made by Shoukry during his meeting with President of Ana Lindth Foundation Elizabeth Guigou. Shoukry greeted Guigou on assuming a second term as president of Ana Lindth Foundation, asserting that Egypt is fully ready to enhance cooperation framework between the foundation and the civil society organizations in Egypt, said the spokesperson. The Egyptian top diplomat, for his part, expressed Egypt's appreciation for the important role played by Ana Lindth to extend bridges of dialogue and interaction among religions and cultures in the face of claims for violence, isolation, and sectarian strife, added the spokesman. President of Ana Lindth, for her part, praised Egypt's enlightenment role all over its history, adding that such role has recently acquired more importance in face of tyrant powers of terrorism which threaten the achievements of human civilization, the spokesman added. She also voiced happiness over Alexandria hosting the premises of the foundation, noting that the coastal city is a unique model of interaction among civilizations and cultures, he said. She also noted that the foundation is seeking to expand its activities and programs in Egypt, a matter which was greatly welcomed by the Egyptian top diplomat, he noted. The Anna Lindh Foundation is an inter-governmental institution bringing together civil society and citizens across the Mediterranean to build trust and improve mutual understanding. Co-financed by the 42 countries of the Union for the Mediterranean and the European Commission, the ALF is governed by a Board of Governors composed by representatives of those countries.

16 militants were killed and 4 others arrested in a major crackdown launched by Egypt on Friday, the Egyptian army said in a statement carried by state TV early on Sunday. Another 30 suspects were arrested, it said. The Egyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on November 29 ordered the military to defeat militants in North Sinai within three months, after an attack on a mosque which killed more than 300 people, the deadliest such incident in the Arab world’s most populous country. A military spokesman said in an earlier statement that the operation would cover large parts of Sinai, but also parts of the Nile Delta and the Western Desert, where other militants have waged attacks, some believed to be staged out of neighbouring Libya.

Egyptian Minister of Planning Hala al-Saeed has witnessed Saturday the launch of the first Global Happiness Policy Report at a pre-World Government Summit (WGS) session heard in Dubai. The report was launched during the Global Dialogue for Happiness Forum, took place. The highlights will be discussed on Sunday evening at World Government Summit. “All religions and moral and ethical systems have called for applying the standards of happiness and living for everyone.” Saeed said. In the UAE, the government’s focus is, above all, on residents’ well-being, said Uhoud Khalfan Al Roumi, Minister of State for Happiness and Quality of Life. She quoted late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE’s first president, who had said “my wealth is the happiness of my people” weeks before the formation of the UAE in 1971. Happiness was not an “idealistic or theoretical” goal, but a “tangible and practical” pillar of UAE government policy and practice, Roumi added. “Sometimes the relationship isn’t clear between policies and happiness”, Roumi said pointing out the UAE had last October launched the Happiness Policy Manual for government establishments to prioritise people’s happiness. The manual provides a systematic and practical explanation of happiness, and details tools to quantify and evaluate it. It seeks to incorporate happiness into all stages of policy-making; formulation, assessment, and implementation. However, in many other places in the world “things are not going well”, according to a panel session during the forum on The Global Policy Happiness Report. For instance, in America, “wealth is up, happiness is down”, said Jeffrey Sachs, leading economist, university professor and director of The Earth Institute at Columbia University. “It’s dramatic in the United States. We have a crisis of mental illness, opioid addiction. People are rich but they are not happy. So studying why that is, and what to do about it, is serious business. And I think this report, and the reports that will follow will really help governments to get this done,” Sachs said. Hosting more than 130 speakers across 120 interactive sessions, the World Government Summit features this year five distinct forums that examine the challenges of vital sectors for the future with a view to finding the best resolutions for the greater global good. Furthermore, over 20 specialised global reports spanning key sectors and topics of the summit are being launched during the event. More»

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met with Emirati leaders in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday where they discussed ways to boost cooperation between the two countries in different fields, the Egyptian presidency said in a statement. El-Sisi held talks with Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE and ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The officials discussed bolstering bilateral ties as well as regional issues, including counterterrorism cooperation between Arab countries to cut off terrorist organisations' access to arms, funds and fighters, Sisi's office said in a statement. The leaders also stressed that "UAE-Egyptian relations are based on strong foundations of consensus and understanding on regional and international issues," UAE state news agency WAM reported. The two sides affirmed the importance of continued coordination between their countries and other Arab states to "confront challenges and crises facing the Arab region and address interference in the internal affairs of the Arab countries aiming to destabilise the region and undermine its security," the Egyptian presidency said. Sisi said that the "security of the Gulf is an integral part of Egyptian national security," his office said, while the Emirati leaders said Cairo's "security and stability are part of the security and stability of all Arabs," according to WAM. They affirmed their backing of Egypt in its fight against terrorism and extremism. Sisi arrived in the UAE after concluding his first official visit to Oman, where he discussed bilateral relations with Sultan Qaboos Bin Said. The United Arab Emirates is one of strongest allies of President Sisi, and like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, has provided his government with billions of dollars in aid to stimulate the country's ailing economy. El-Sisi visited Abu Dhabi in September where he discussed joint counterterrorism efforts and bilateral relations with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. More»

Terrain, weather, type of fuel, after sales services, spare parts, aimed market, return on investment… the list keeps going. Writing or talking about the ideal car or the best car to buy is definitely stripped of emotions compared to an individual who is in the process of buying a car that he always dreamed of owning. It would be difficult for Lewis Hamilton himself, the 2017 Formula One world champion, to persuade someone that his adorable car has many cons. So let’s agree on something: it’s very difficult to convince anyone to change his mind about a car he has already fell in love with. Mindsets vary when it comes to choosing an ideal car because people have their own needs, and before all else, different background information about cars. Some believe that a car is a type of transport dedicated to carrying occupants from one place to another. Others believe that a car is a piece of art that deserves appreciation and love. Accordingly, on both banks of the river, the other side doesn’t always have to appear greener, but the river always looks the same. The same thing works for the country or region that you choose to drive your car in. There are facts that are one way or another visible to car owners, or become visible after they buy the car. Sometimes it may take days to figure out or maybe even years. More»
