The Italian Embassy in Cairo and the Foreign Ministry are closely following with great concern the fate of Giulio Regeni, a 28-year-old student who has mysteriously disappeared on the evening of 25 January in the centre of the Egyptian capital.
Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni recently had a telephone conversation with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry, to whom he asked to do his utmost to trace the Italian student and provide any possible information on his condition.
The Embassy in Cairo immediately activated direct communication channels from the very first hours after his disappearance and coordinated activities with all the competent Egyptian Authorities. It is now awaiting information on the dynamic of the disappearance. The Embassy and the Ministry are keeping close contacts with Giulio’s parents.
