The Libyan Address Journal
The Egyptian Deputy Foreign Minister for African Affairs, Ambassador Hamdi Sanad Loza, called on the members of the “Coalition for the Coast” to take a firm stance against the countries that “finance, train, and transfer terrorists from Syria to Libya, because of the threat that this poses to the neighboring countries, especially the Sahel states. ”
According to a statement by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, Loza participated in the first ministerial meeting called by France for the “Coalition for the Coast” initiative, which “aims to combat terrorism and support the military capabilities of the Sahel countries and support them in the field of development and regional integration.”
The five Sahel countries, a number of foreign ministers of the European Union, and African countries concerned, as well as the High Representative for Foreign Affairs of the European Union and the African Union Commission, participated in the meeting.
During the meeting, Loza reviewed Egypt’s support to these countries on a bilateral level and in the field of military training and participation in peacekeepers in Mali, according to the statement.
