Shoukry attends G-20 meeting dominated by Ukraine war tensions

Shoukry at the G-20: Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry attended the G-20 meeting on combating terrorism and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief on Thursday in New Delhi, according to a ministry statement. Shoukry also met separately with his Indian, British, Brazilian, Canadian, Dutch, Argentinian and Mexican counterparts where they discussed bilateral relations, trade and investment opportunities, as well as international issues including the implications of Russia’s war in Ukraine and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

As expected, the war in Ukraine dominated proceedings: G-20 foreign ministers were unable to produce a final statement following last week’s meeting, with Western nations and Russia trading barbs over Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

MEANWHILE- Egypt, world leaders condemn Israeli minister's call to wipe out Palestinian village: Egypt condemned “in the strongest terms” calls by Israel’s far-right finance minister to “erase” the Palestinian village of Hawara following last week’s settler rampage. Other world leaders condemned the remarks, Including the UN and the US State Department, which called them “repugnant” and “disgusting.” Israeli settlers attacked the village last week, hours after two Israelis were shot by Palestinian gunmen, in what a senior Israeli military commander described as a “pogrom.”
