PARIS - Egypt's foreign minister on Tuesday called for a "collective and international approach" against the "barbarism" of jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq.


In an interview with AFP, Sameh Shoukri said: "What we need is a collective and international approach that takes into account all the different elements required to fight this phenomenon: political, military and social."


"It's only with an international commitment that we can get rid of this barbarism," added Shoukri, speaking to AFP on a visit to Paris.
