MOSCOW, September 16 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow would like Egypt to play a role in ensuring the League of Arab States’ more balanced approach to the events in the region, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday, as he opened talks with his Egyptian counterpart Nabil Fahmy.
“We appreciate the opportunity of exchanging vies with the new Egyptian leadership,” Lavrov said. “We are interested in the maximum stabilization of the situation in Egypt, the continuation of the political process that would let the country develop itself without external intervention.”
For Russia, he said, the situation in Egypt is very important, because it is crucial to the diversified development of bilateral relations.
“It is in our interests to see Egypt play an important role in the Arab world and ensure a balanced approach of the League of Arab States to the events in the region. We have a great deal to discuss.”
Nabil Fahmy recalled that it was his first foreign visit outside the Arab world.
“I would like to thank Russia for its clear and logical stance, which is distinguished by wisdom regarding the situation in Egypt,” Fahmy said. “I would like to appreciate Russia’s diplomatic efforts to settle regional problems.”
