Shoukry stated this in an interview with Sputnik ahead of the inaugural Russia-Africa Summit.
The Russia-Africa Summit and business forum, co-chaired by the presidents of Russia and Egypt, is scheduled to hold in the Russian resort city of Sochi from Oct. 23 to Oct. 24.
“African capabilities in security cooperation and information-sharing should be strengthened not only among themselves (African nations), but with its international partners, including Russia, with its powerful intelligence services that can crack down on these organisations,” Shoukry said.
He pointed to the need for the global community to efficiently counter nations supporting terrorism and providing extremist organizations with shelter and funds.
“Certainly, extremist and terrorist organisations pose a threat to the African continent, to international peace and security, and to Europe, including Russia, and the whole world.
According to the Egyptian foreign minister, extremist ideology can be eradicated through explaining the true values of Islam.
