Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is meeting with Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry on Thursday morning, with the fate of jailed Egyptian-Canadian journalist Mohamed Fahmy on the agenda.

Earlier this month, an Egyptian court ordered a retrial for Fahmy and his colleagues, Australian correspondent Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed, an Egyptian producer, but a date has yet to be set.

The three Al-Jazeera English journalists were convicted last year of terror-related charges and sentenced to between seven and 10 years in prison — charges all three men deny.
