MENA , Monday 15 Mar 2021

Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry has stressed that African countries need to have sufficient amounts of coronavirus vaccines to meet their needs.

During a meeting with Guinea Conakry FM Ibrahima Kaba, Shoukry said that Egypt is looking forward to boosting cooperation with Guinea Conakry in the coming period.

He also congratulated Kaba on assuming his post in February 2021, said spokesman for the foreign ministry Ahmed Hafez.

The two ministers voiced their keenness on fostering relations between Egypt and Guinea Conakry in the economic, trade and agricultural fields.

Egypt is ready to cooperate with Guinea Conakry in the field of capacity-building and to transfer its expertise to the African country through training courses organised by the Egyptian Agency of Partnership for Development, Shoukry said.

Egypt also seeks to contribute to the development of Gamal Abdel-Nasser University in Conakry to be an educational and cultural beacon, not only for the Guinean people but for the African continent as a whole, he noted.

The meeting also reviewed efforts to combat terrorism and achieve economic integration among African countries, said the spokesman.
