Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi received in Cairo on Wednesday Saudi Attorney General Sheikh Saud bin Abdullah Al-Muajab and public prosecutors participating in the 1st Middle East and North African Regional Conference, reported the Saudi Press Agency.

Sisi affirmed the importance of the upcoming conference, pointing out that terrorist financing and money laundering operations are the most important challenges facing the world.

He also warned of the danger of terrorists returning to their homelands from conflict zones.

He said that the returnees, or foreign fighters, pose a threat to their societies and are exploited to spread extremist ideology.

The conference will address ways to bolster international cooperation to confront the escalating threat of terrorism financing and money laundering.
