El-Sisi: Maintaining Syria’s unity is important

Paris, SANA – Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi stressed the importance of preserving Syria’s unity and moving towards a political solution to the crisis in it, reiterating his country’s position that the Syrian people are the ones who decide the future of their own country.

In a television interview during his current visit to France, el-Sisi said that Egypt always has a consistent view and a firm policy towards countries that are in a state of disturbance, including Syria.

It is very important to preserve the unity of countries so that things in the region do not worsen, that is, preserving the national state and the political solution to crises, he added.

The Egyptian President pointed out that the national army in countries facing great challenges of instability should be responsible for preserving the state, confronting terrorism and extremism, and establishing security and stability, stressing that this is the only way to end crises facing the region.

El-Sisi highlighted the need to unite international efforts to face the serious terrorist threat that led to the killing and displacement of millions in Syria, Iraq, Libya and other countries, adding that his country realizes that the great successes achieved in the war on terror in Syria and Iraq will result in the transfer of some terrorist elements to Egypt, Libya and other parts in West Africa, so it is necessary to unite in order to prevent the arrival of those terrorists and weapons.

He warned that there are countries that finance terrorists, supply them with weapons, train them and provide moral, media and political support to them, stressing that these countries must stop their actions to achieve stability in the world.
