Finance Minister – International Stances Shifted in Favor of Egypt

Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said there are clear signs confirming that the international stances had shifted in favor of Egypt and supporting the roadmap.

This came during an interview with the London-based “Arab” newspaper.

Fahmy noted that there is a noticeable change in the US stance towards Egypt as Secretary of State John Kerry said his country respects the will of the Egyptian people and the US administration supports the steps taken by the Egyptian government to implement the roadmap.

About the report of the US State Department on the fight against terrorism released on April 30, 2013, Fahmy asserted that the report has strengthened the Egyptian stance and acknowledged that Egypt is fighting a war against terrorism not only in Sinai but also all over the country.

Regarding the Egyptian moves on the African arena, Fahmy asserted that Egypt is keen to restore its role in the African continent based on the principle of achieving gains for all the countries without harming the interests of any party.
