France supports Egypt’s policy reforms -French FM

France supports Egypt’s policy reforms and French investments in Egypt, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said, according to Al Shorouk. Le Drian discussed with FM Sameh Shoukry cooperation in fighting terrorism and in resolving regional conflicts including in Libya. Shoukry said both countries agree on regional and international issues, according to Al Shorouk. France stands with Egypt against terrorism that hit both countries, Le Drian said.

As for security cooperation talks, Le Drian said that the two countries had firmed up security ties, Le Drian said, according to Reuters. Le Drian’s visit was the second by a French minister last week, coming after Defense Minister Sylvie Goulard’s talks with her Egyptian counterpart Sedky Sobhi on Monday on how to reinforce security cooperation including the best way to enhance monitoring of Egypt’s borders.
