Iraqi Embassy in Cairo commended the decision issued by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to launch an initiative to eliminate Hepatitis C among Arab
communities, including Iraqis, residing in Egypt.
This came as part of the recommendations issued at the closing ceremony of the Arab and African Youth Forum held in Aswan Governorate.
The Iraqi embassy said in a press statement on Monday that Sisi's initiatives to eliminate Hepatitis C for a million African people and eradicate the blood-borne disease among Arab communities indicates Egypt's keenness to remove obstacles faced by Arab people.
The embassy thanked the Egyptian government for its role in embracing the Arab communities, as well as the hospitality that the Egyptian people deal accordingly with their Arab brothers.
