CAIRO, October 4. /TASS/. Egypt and Tunisia support only political settlement in Syria and stand for its territorial integrity, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Sunday after talks with his Tunisian counterpart Beji Caid Essebsi, who arrived in Cairo on his first official visit.
Addressing a news conference after the talks, al-Sisi said the sides had agreed that it was necessary to promote efforts towards comprehensive political settlement in Syria with an aim of preserving its integrity and unity.
He said they had exchanged with Essebsi "opinions on a number of pressing problems of mutual concern on both regional and international levels," such as terrorism and extremism that were threatening national security of the two countries and stability in the region.
