Egypt’s Foreign Minister, Badr Abdel Atty, expressed his country’s gratitude for the supportive stance taken by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, regarding the situation in the region, particularly the Gaza crisis.

Borrell called Abdel Atty, who also serves as the Minister for Emigration and Egyptian Expatriates, to congratulate him on his new position. During the call, Abdel Atty and Borrell expressed their eagerness to elevate relations between Egypt and the EU to the level of a strategic partnership.

They welcomed the momentum and success of the Egypt-EU Investment Conference held on June 29-30, which was one of the first major events of the new strategic partnership. The conference sent a clear message to the European private sector about Egypt’s significance as a major destination for European investments.

Abdel Atty emphasized the importance Egypt places on implementing the comprehensive partnership agreement between Egypt and the EU with its six pillars and accelerating the disbursement of the related financial packages.

Both sides expressed an eagerness to continue consultation and coordination in line with the joint declaration on enhancing political dialogue between Egypt and the EU. The call also touched on the developments regarding the Gaza crisis, according to Ahmed Abu Zeid, spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Emigration, and Egyptian Expatriates.

Abdel Atty noted that he looked forward to continuing joint efforts to halt the war in the Gaza Strip and facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid to address the catastrophic humanitarian situation facing Gaza’s residents. He emphasized Egypt’s commitment to ongoing coordination with the EU to support stability and defuse the serious crises currently facing the Middle East.
