MENA , Monday 6 Sep 2021


Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry discussed during a phone call Monday with his Norwegian counterpart Ine Marie Eriksen ways of bolstering cooperation in various domains, along with the latest developments in the regional and international arenas as well as the current Palestinian conditions.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Hafez said the two sides took up boosting bilateral relations, with regard to ongoing Norwegian investments in national Egyptian ventures.

They agreed to continue coordination on issues of mutual concern, the spokesman said.

Eriksen extended an invitation to Shoukri to attend an Ad-Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC) session on coordinating delivery of international aid to Palestinians, especially in light of Norway's efforts on this score, he added.

The session is to be held in New York, on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA)'s upcoming meetings.
