Presidential Assistant Essam Haddad criticized on Thursday 10/01/2013 Egyptian media coverage of the latest visit by a high-level delegation to the UAE.
The media ignored, either on purpose or accidentally, the prime goal of the visit which is buttressing relations between Egypt and the UAE and bringing them back on right track and concentrated only on its consular part, Haddad said in a statement posted on his Facebook page.
"Indeed, the visit tackled the issue of the Egyptians detained in the UAE because we care for all Egyptians abroad but the visit has managed to set up a constructive dialogue with the UAE," he added.
He stressed that the file of Egyptian expatriates is being handled in an institutional way among all state institutions concerned and is backed by the Egyptian presidency.
"We care for all Egyptians," he said, dismissing as groundless allegations that there is discrimination being exercised against Egyptians according to their religious affiliations or intellectual leanings.
Reports in this regard are only meant to divide Egyptians and create a state of political confusion, he added.
