According to the state-owned media outlet, the committee answered questions from the Canadian delegation on the current economic status and strategies followed to counter terrorism.
From its part, the Canadian parliamentary committee explained the nature of its work and the goals behind the visit, which are providing all support to the newly-born Egyptian democracy and discussing counter-terrorism strategies.
