In Egypt, three leaders of the human rights group EIPR were arrested and accused, among other things of “belonging to a terrorist group” following their meeting with 13 ambassadors, including the ambassador of France. In this context, is Mr. Macron’s invitation to his Egyptian counterpart to visit the Elysée still on?

We are closely monitoring the situation, as part of our frank and demanding dialogue with Egypt on human rights. I refer you to our statement of November 17 on this issue.
