On Tuesday, the Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry held talks with Malaysian Minister of Environment and Water, Tuan Ibrahim bin Tuan Man, in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, as part of his current Asian tour.

 

In a statement, the spokesman of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, Ahmed Hafez, stated that the two ministers exchanged views on the most important issues on the agenda of the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 27) scheduled to be held in Sharm El-Sheikh.

 

He added that they also tackled ways to enhance coordination between the two countries during the coming period on priority issues, foremost of which are the climate change and its negative repercussions, ways to provide climate financing for developing countries, and efforts to reduce emissions, in addition to strengthening countries for their nationally determined contributions in accordance with the Paris Agreement.

Shoukry, who is in three-day inaugural visit to Malaysia starting Monday said the second Joint Commission Meeting (JCM) is important to further boost areas of cooperation between both countries besides developing a roadmap that could be mutually reinforced to various areas of cooperation.

 

The Egyptian foreign minister said his visit to Malaysia is important as it represented a qualitative shift in bilateral relations of both countries in terms of political, economic and cultural level.

 

He also congratulated Malaysia for successfully implementing the National COVID-19 Immunization Programme, its move to reopen international borders on April 1 and its election to the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) for the term 2022-2024.
