Egypt’s State Information Service (SIS) announced on Wednesday that it will hold a regular monthly meeting for accredited foreign correspondents in the country to meet with SIS chairman Diaa Rashwan.

“The aim behind these regular meetings is to listen to the foreign correspondents and respond to any inquiries related to their work and their coverage of Egyptian affairs,” Rashwan said in the statement.

Rashwan said that through these meetings, the SIS can get acquainted with correspondents’ opinions and perspectives on “their performances of their duties” and the SIS’ ability to provide them with “the means through which they can reflect the actual facts regarding affairs and issues related to Egypt in light of universally accepted standards of journalism.”

The first meeting will be held on the first Tuesday of every month starting 2 June at the foreign correspondents club in Talaat Harb Street, Downtown Cairo.
