Egyptian prez says solutions to global conflicts should base on UN Charter, int’l law


Sisi made the remarks while addressing the second Russia-Africa summit in Russia’s St. Petersburg, the Egyptian Presidency said on Friday in a statement.

The two-day summit started on Thursday with the participation of 49 African countries, with topics covering cooperation opportunities in food, energy, space, information technology, education and sports, among others.

Amid complex and rapidly changing international circumstances characterised by polarization, “our African countries stand to face a huge number of challenges not only affecting our ability to complete development paths but also threatening the determinants of our security and the rights of future generations,” he noted.

Sisi said African countries are sovereign, independent, active in the international community, and aspire to peace, security and serving the interests of their people through sustainable development, Xinhua news agency reported.

African economies have been challenged by severe repercussions of ongoing conflicts, especially those in food security, supply chains and high energy prices, he noted.

He underscored the importance of finding prompt solutions to provide food and grain at prices that would help Africa overcome this crisis while exploring innovative financing mechanisms to support agricultural and food systems in Africa.

“I look forward to reaching a consensual solution with regard to the grain deal, that would take into consideration the demands and interests of all parties and curb rising grain prices,” Sisi noted.

He also reiterated Egypt’s commitment to continuing deepening strategic partnership.

The first Russia-Africa summit was held in Sochi, Russia, in 2019 co-hosted by Russia and Egypt when the latter was chair of the African Union.
