Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry tells the Nikkei Asian Review in Tokyo that "a comprehensive approach to deal with all terrorist organisations" is necessary.
Shoukry said that all terrorist organisations, no matter their name or location, have a common objective.
"Regardless of what it is called, the common ideological and political objective of these organisations is the creation of an Islamic state," he said. "We cannot deal with IS and neglect Boko Haram or the Muslim Brotherhood.”
The Egyptian Foreign Minister highlighted that Egypt is "aware of the dangers of this ideology."
Egypt has been at the forefront in the fight against terrorism, being a victim of terrorism since the 1970s and 1980s, the minister told the Asian Review.
During the interview, Shoukry called for Turkey and Russia to contain tensions over the Turkish military's downing of a Russian fighter jet and to "find a reasonable and just solution."
"It is a dangerous situation that only highlights the need for coordination in the fight against terrorism," Shoukry told the Nikkei Asian Review in Tokyo on Wednesday.
"It is the responsibility of the Arab world to present a more progressive and a more enlightened form of Islam that is inclusive, non-violent, and is able to live with the diversity of the international community."
The Egyptian FM is on a week long Asian tour to strengthen political and economic ties with countries like Japan and South Korea.
In Tokyo, Shoukry met representatives from the Japanese International Cooperation Agency and the Egyptian-Japanese Parliamentarian Friendship Association.
