Shoukry meets Lockheed Martin Chairperson, various diplomats in Munich

Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met with F-16 manufacturer Lockheed Martin’s Chairperson Marillyn Hewson in Munich yesterday to discuss further aerospace cooperation. Shoukry also met with his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Makei to discuss preparations for an MoU on ICT cooperation.

Shoukry discussed ways to revive Palestinian peace talks with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, according to a ministry statement. The minister also met with UN Special Representative for Libya, Ghassan Salamé, for talks on Libya and discussed efforts to curb terrorism and illegal migration with French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly and Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos. Rounding off Shoukry’s busy diplomatic schedule was a meeting with Chairman of the European People’s Party Manfred Weber.

This comes as Egypt cuts off diesel shipments to Gaza on Wednesday, leading the strip’s only power station to stop working, according to Ynet News.
