The Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Counselor Ahmed Hafez, stated that Minister Shoukry affirmed that Cairo attaches a particular importance to advancing the path of bilateral coordination and cooperation with Algeria in light of the close ties and deep-rooted relations between the two sisterly countries.
