ECFA’s Statement on President El-Sisi Participation at the 71st Session at the UN General Assembly
The Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs expresses its full appreciation for active participation and intensive efforts made by the President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi during his participation in 71st session of the UN General Assembly on the one hand, and the intensive activities on the sidelines on the other one, which included meetings with a number of world leaders, senior officials and the Democratic and the Republican candidates for the US presidency.
The President’s speech before the UNGA was an appropriate occasion to stress on a number of key points related to confronting the challenges that Egypt is facing internally and externally, in addition to reviewing its vision for the region’s issues and challenges.
Mr. President was very keen to inform the world leaders about the political, economic and social developments in Egypt since the revolution of 30th June 2013 and the challenges it faces and its efforts to confront them, particularly, with regard to the program of economic reform and the role of Egypt in implementing the sustainable development goals for 2030. He was keen to present the major national projects implemented by the state in order to attract foreign investments and contribute to fighting terrorism.
ECFA stresses that the participation of President El-Sisi and the meetings are going to contribute to further strengthening the role of Egypt and consolidating its position as a leader in the region and the world arena. The participation confirmed the Egyptian determination to move forward to restore its historic role in establishing peace and security at the regional and international levels.
