US Envoy Meets With Egypt Foreign Minister to Discuss Counter-Daesh Efforts

US Special Presidential Envoy Brett McGurk announced on Tuesday that he has met with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry to discuss the efforts in the campaign against the Daesh terrorist group.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On June 18-21, Mcgurk held meetings with the leaders of Iraq and the Kurdistan Region.

"Detailed meetings in Cairo with FM [Foreign Minister] Shoukry and MOD [Ministry of Defense] officials on fight against ISIL's [Daesh] global networks and affiliates," McGurk said in a Twitter message.

A US-led coalition of nearly 60 nations has been conducting airstrikes against Daesh in Iraq and Syria since the summer of 2014.

Daesh is a terrorist organization prohibited in many countries around the world, including in the United States and Russia.
