Egypt’s Shoukry started Tuesday a European tour to Germany and Austria, where he has discussed ways of boosting relations between Egypt and its European partners to enhance coordination with the German and Austrian governments, especially in light of Austria's periodic presidency of the European Union.

Shoukry’s discussed the economic reform program and Egypt’s deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), calling the Austrian companies to invest in Egypt’s megaproject of Suez Canal Corridor and the new Administrative Capital, Abu Zeid added.

Egypt’s Foreign Minister also discussed his country’s efforts of combating the illegal migration and counter-terrorism efforts, particularly in Siani. Both parties have tackled the regional and international issues of mutual concern, Abu Zeid continued.
