"There is no reported victims of Indonesian citizens thus far," the ministry added.
Indonesian Foreign Ministry's Asia-Pacific Director General, Desra Percaya, and Egypt's Assistant Foreign Minister for Asia and Pacific Islands, Hany Selim, chaired the sixth bilateral consultation between Indonesia and Egypt in Cairo last month.
During the forum, the two delegations evaluated the development of bilateral relationship of both countries in a number of sectors. They also discussed the regional and global issues that raise common concerns. The meeting produced six Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs), including the establishment of Collective Commission Trial, Joint Trade Committee, as well as other partnerships in fisheries, health, energy, and defense.
At the meeting, Indonesian government also delivered a discussion proposal to Egypt pertaining to Mandatory Consular Notification (MCN) as an attempt to improve Indonesian citizen protection in Egypt. Both countries have agreed to form a consular dialogue team to discuss the countries' mutual interests. The Indonesian citizens that reside in Egypt reach 7,991 people; 6,229 of whom are higher education students, while 463 are informal sector employees.
