Egypt State Information Service

Arab foreign ministers meeting Thursday on the sidelines of the 63rd UN General Assembly session in New York voiced their support for the nomination of Egypt's Minister of Culture Farouk Hosni for the UNESCO top post.

Egyptian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hosam Zaki, who is also spokesman for Arab foreign ministers meeting in New York, said the Arab decision to consider the Egyptian nominee as representative to all the Arab nations came following Morocco's declaration of the withdrawal of its candidate for the post.

He added that the ministry will intensify contacts with foreign states to mobilize international support for the Egyptian and Arab nominee in coordination with the Arab embassies.
