EU, Egypt Launch Migration Dialogue to Tackle Human Trafficking

CAIRO – The European Union and Egypt launched on Sunday the Egypt-EU Migration Dialogue with the aim of discussing the fight against human trafficking and boosting legal channels of migration.

During the first meeting under this initiative in Cairo, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and Dimitris Avramopoulos, the European commissioner for migration, home affairs and citizenship, stressed the benefits of dialogue, according to a statement released by the EU delegation in Cairo.

“Egypt is a strategic partner for the EU on many fronts. We share a common interest in securing sustainable stability and security in Egypt and the surrounding region, as well as in managing migration better together,” Avramopoulos said in the statement.

“Today we make an important step ahead in EU-Egypt cooperation for the coming years, which is equally beneficial for our societies as well as for the migrants themselves,” he added.

The dialogue is also expected to help identify and exchange information and experience in this field, according to the statement.

Egypt is one of the transit countries that host a large number of migrates, mainly from Africa, who are making a bid to reach European soil.
