US ambassador to Egypt Robert Stephen Beecroft on Tuesday lauded the Egyptian interior ministry's efforts to combat terrorism and maintain stability, while being hosted by Interior Minister Magdi Abdel-Gaffar.

Abdel-Gaffar, in return, praised cooperation with the US concerning security, specifically in providing training programmes to security personnel.

He stressed that a series of operations had halted a number of terror attacks, which notably increased across the country following the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.

Beecroft stressed the importance of Egypt's role in fighting terrorism not only domestically, but also regionally, according to the Ahram Arabic website.
