CAIRO, July 20 (Itar-Tass) - Egypt backs the Syrian revolution, but it is not going to be dragged into war, Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said on Saturday.
“Cairo backs the Syrian revolution and the Syrian people’s right to worthy life within the democratic principles and we’ll do our best to achieve this goal. We’ll assess all events, but this does not mean that our relations are broken off or restored. We don’t intend to be dragged into a holy war in Syria,” Fahmy said.
On June 15 ousted President Mohamed Morsi said diplomatic relations had been broken off with Syria and the embassies had been closed. “Diplomatic relations between the two countries broke under the previous regime. But the consulates in Cairo and Damascus continue to work,” the Egyptian minister said.
The political solution “is the best and unique method to solve the problem. It will help preserve Syria’s sovereignty. We hope that we’ll see progress within the nearest weeks of months. But till now progress is deplorable”, the Egyptian foreign minister said.
