Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi says there is need for a Muslim discourse on the fight against global terrorism.

Speaking at the opening of the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi on Monday, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi  said the Muslim religious discourse would be in addition to the security and military measures against terror.

Speaking in Arab at the fully packed Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said the fight must not only be restricted to security and military aspects but should include a reformed religious discourse from which false ideologies are being adopted to perpetrate violence. 

Fattah Al-Sis call comes just after the European Union had sounded a similar call on Monday urging for an alliance with Muslim countries to fight the growing Islamist militant threat.

Recently suspected Islamic militants attacked a news publication in Paris killing seventeen people. The attackers claimed they were acting on behalf of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group.

Uganda and Kenya are some of the East African countries under the threat of Islamic militants linked to Al Shabab terror group. Kenya and Uganda contribute troops to the African Union Mission in Somalia.
