Egypt ‘Has Key Role’ in Fight Against IS – Kerry

Egypt has a key role to play in countering Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on a visit to Cairo on Saturday.

Kerry’s schedule in Egypt, his latest stop of his regional tour to form an international coalition to tackle Islamic State (IS) militants, includes meetings with Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi, Egyptian President Abdul Fattah el-Sissi and Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has already enlisted the support of 10 Arab states so far but he categorically ruled out any help from Iran.
