Egypt's Interior Ministry is keen on providing all necessary support and assistance to police and security bodies in Africa, Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfik said on Tuesday.

The minister made his remark at a meeting with his Zambian counterpart Stephen Kampyongo, who is on an official visit to Egypt leading a delegation of his senior aides to the 5th Pan-African Forum on Migration (PAFoM) in Cairo.

Lauding the robust ties between both friendly nations, Tawfik underscored the significant importance Egypt attaches to cooperation with all African states in light of its current presidency of the African Union (AU).

The meeting took up means of furthering security cooperation in several domains of mutual interest, including training and knowledge exchange.

Kampyongo applauded strenuous efforts exerted to consolidate Egypt's stability, voicing his aspiration to make greater use of Egyptian security and training expertise.

Both ministers asserted the need to keep coordination and consultation in the coming period to face common security challenges.
