Speech by @FedericaMog at Cairo University: "Europe and the Arab youth. Shared history, common future"!hM73Qy



"The average age in Egypt is 25. I was told today – by several of the people I met – that there are over sixty million young people in this country. This is a young country in a young region. There is so much potential for change and development, so much energy. The real challenge is making the most out of this potential."


"Tension in the Holy Places can only play in the hands of terrorists of all kinds. It can facilitate radicalisation and recruitment. It can reinforce their narrative of a war of religion.  On the other hand, think what peace in the Holy Land could do. Think of a pacified Jerusalem, a city for all the children of Abraham, a capital for two States. How sweet would that be... I know sweet is not a word we associate with the Middle East… We should. What a powerful message would it send to the whole Middle East, to the whole world."
