Egyptian FM urges EU to continue supporting Palestinian Authority


Egyptian Foreign Minister Dr. Badr Abdelatty called on the European Union (EU) Sunday to continue supporting the Palestinian Authority to enable it to fulfill its responsibilities towards Palestinian people.

Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Ambassador Ahmed Abu Zeid said in a press statement that the remarks were made during a phone call between Dr. Abdelatty and the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, during which they discussed developments in the Gaza Strip.

Dr. Abdelatty expressed Egypt’s appreciation for Borrell’s positive stance on regional issues, particularly the Gaza crisis, as he looked forward to continuing joint efforts to end the ongoing Israeli occupation forces’ aggression on Gaza and facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid to tackle the dire situation faced by its residents.

Dr. Abdelatty underlined Egypt’s commitment to ongoing coordination with the EU to support stability and defuse the serious crises currently facing the Middle East.

He und
erscored the importance Egypt places on implementing comprehensive partnership agreement with the EU, including its six key components, and speeding up the disbursement of related funding packages.

Both sides confirmed their shared commitment to elevating Egypt-EU relations to a strategic partnership level, the spokesman said.

The call also welcomed the momentum and success of the Egypt-EU Investment Conference held last June 29-30, which was one of the first major events of the new strategic partnership, sending a clear message to the European private sector about Egypt’s importance as a key destination for European investments, he added.

Both sides expressed their eagerness to continue consultations and coordination in line with the joint political declaration aimed at enhancing political dialogue between Egypt and the EU.
