“We are suffering also from that (those attacks), just happens that you are also feeling it now. Regrettably it (the phenomenon) has crossed the Mediterranean and came to you. We all have to cooperate, exchange intelligence information, to do whatever is needed by experts.”
 
El-Araby also suggested that every country should be wary of the threat of extremism. 
 
The Secretary General also joined EU foreign ministers to discuss topics such as anti-terrorism and signed a memorandum of understanding on further cooperation with the EU.
