Today, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and the European Commission adopted a Joint Communication proposing an EU strategy for Iraq in order to address the many challenges the country faces following the territorial defeat of Da'esh.
The National Erasmus+ Office - Egypt, being the only official entity responsible for the representation and implementation of the EU-funded programme "Erasmus+" in Egypt, would like to confirm that there is no other entity entitled to represent, implement, or receive applications from individuals, impose fees under any aspect of benefiting individuals in the form of scholarships, fellowships, internships or volunteering activities.
يؤكد مكتب برنامج الاتحاد الأوروبي للتعليم العالي "إيراسموس+"، بصفته الجهة الوحيدة المسئولة عن تمثيل وتطبيق البرنامج في مصر، على عدم وجود أي كيان آخر داخل مصر تحت أي مسمى منوط به تمثيل البرنامج أو تطبيقه بأي صورة من الصور (تمثيل، استلام طلبات الأفراد للسفر، طلب أي أتعاب تحت أي مسمى؛ سواء منح تدريبية، منح دراسية، برامج تطوعية).
The Iraqi people, their Government and their armed forces, with international support from the Global Coalition against Da'esh have successfully ended Da'esh's effective territorial control in Iraq. The country has suffered years of conflict, since 2003 and before, but Da'esh's acts of terror from 2014 onwards have been the most gruesome manifestation of internal violence so far. Iraq now needs to seize the renewed opportunity it has to build an inclusive and accountable political system that serves all communities, regions and beliefs, preserves the country's diversity, and enhances its democratic order. This is essential to rebuild trust between the people and their Government and to avoid a return to divisive sectarianism and separatism.
The EU in particular has a vital interest in making sure that Iraq emerges from the crisis stronger.
