CAIRO: The Egyptian Defense Ministry will offer 1,000 scholarships to African countries in the Egyptian military academies and institutes, President Abdel Fatah al Sisi announced Thursday.

The remarks came during Sisi’s meetings with heads of the delegations participating in a conference of defense ministers from the Community of Sahel-Saharan States  concluded Friday in Sharm el Sheikh.

The offer comes as part of Egypt’s policy of improving relations with African nations and  enhancing co-operation with countries of the Sahel-Saharan community, said Sisi, emphasizing the special importance of the conference in light of security threats and the recent attacks in Europe.
The president also stressed the need for political solutions to conflicts on the African continent in order to achieve development, presidential spokesperson Alaa Youssef said in a statement.
