Speaking at the closing ceremony of the 4th edition of the World Youth Forum (WYF) on Thursday, Sisi said that the forum has become a key platform for dialogue.

In his speech at the closing ceremony of the forum, the president praised the organization of the event which came out in such a representable way.
President Sisi said that the situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic in the world imposed itself on the agenda of the forum in light of questions on the fate of the world and its future in terms of being affected by the pandemic.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of the World Youth Forum (WYF), the president said the forum has become an important dialogue platform. “It is a purely Egyptian idea.”
