Egypt's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Ahmed Abu-Zaid has said that Cairo is willing to provide more evidence on the support of certain countries for terrorism, stressing that the international community should bear its responsibilities and abandon the policy of "denial and compromises." 
Egypt is set to participate in meetings of the global coalition against Daesh in Washington D.C. from 11 to 13 July, a statement on the ministry's Facebook page read on Wednesday.
Abu-Zaid said that the strategic communication work group meetings of the global anti-Daesh coalition come amid significant strategic developments.
The spokesperson underscored the importance of Egypt's participation in such meetings to give a comprehensive vision of the war against terrorism. 
"The importance of the upcoming meetings comes in light of recent measures taken by some Arab countries against Doha for its support and financing of terrorist organisations, which places an additional challenge in front of the coalition in which Qatar is a member," Abu-Zaid said in the statement.
The upcoming meetings follow major retreats by Daesh from its previous strongholds in Iraq's Mosul and Syria's Raqqa.
The last meeting of the coalition took place in Washington, D.C on 22 March.
Egypt, which is facing an Islamist insurgency led by Daesh group in North Sinai has agreed to join the 60 nations global coalition, but has not made mention of any international military role.
