Cairo to host Munich Security Conference follow-up meeting this week
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 23 - 10 - 2019

The Munich Security Conference will hold its Core Group Meeting series in Cairo from 26-28 October, bringing together senior decision-makers and experts from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and other parts of the world to discuss crises in the region, the conference said on Tuesday.
The Cairo discussions will revolve around issues of regional security cooperation, especially pertaining to the situation in the Horn of Africa and instability in Libya, Sudan, and the Sahel region, as well as common challenges for Arab and African states.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry will attend, as will Niger's Foreign Minister Kalla Ankourao, Uganda's Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa, Djibouti's Foreign Minister Mahamoud Ali Youssouf, and the Secretary-General of the Arab League Ahmed Aboul-Gheit.
Among the participants from further afield will be a delegation of German parliamentarians, including German Deputy Foreign Minister Niels Annen, according to the conference website.
Other European representatives will attend.
The event is being supported by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the League of Arab States.
The conference will also convene a subsequent Core Group Meeting in Doha, co-hosted with the Government of Qatar, on 28 and 29 October. The Doha meeting will take place with the support of the Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the League of Arab States.
Like Cairo, it will bring together 60 to 80 senior political decision-makers, experts, and representatives of international organisations and civil society from the respective regions, with counterparts from Germany, Europe and other parts of the world.
"The Cairo and Doha meetings are the first in this series. Further upcoming events will be held in Saudi Arabia and Turkey," the conference website said.
Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi took part in the annual Munich Security Policy Conference this February.
The Egyptian president highlighted security challenges facing the African continent, migration issues and means of fighting terrorism in his address.
Sisi also referred to the Libyan issue as one of the most pressing African issues requiring a solution.
