Egypt’s Foreign Ministry: Egypt is keen to solve the Syrian crisis as quickly as possible
Egypt’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid said in a Facebook statement that Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry received on Monday the UN Special Envoy for Syria, Geir Pedersen, in the framework of continuous coordination between Egypt and the UN in order to advance the political solution in Syria.
The statement added that Shoukry affirmed to Pedersen the need to revive the political process within the framework of Egypt’s desire to settle the “Syrian crisis” as soon as possible, and in accordance with relevant international resolutions, the most important is the UN Security Council Resolution No. 2254.
Shoukry made it clear that the importance of resolving the Syrian crisis is in order to preserve the integrity and unity of Syria, to end all forms of terrorism and foreign interference in it, and to put an end to the suffering of the brotherly Syrian people.
The spokesperson pointed out that Shoukry briefed the UN envoy on the support provided by Egypt to Syria to face the consequences of the devastating earthquake last February, stressing the need for continuous support by all parties to help Syria withstand these consequences.
Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry met last February with Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, last February, to show solidarity in facing the repercussions of the devastating earthquake.
