The President of Egypt Abdulfattah Al-Sisi warned from a military intervention in Syria and called for respecting its territorial sovereignty and dealing with the flow of terrorist foreign fighters.

Al-Sisi gave an exclusive interview on Tuesday 10 February 2015 to the Russian news agency Sputnik. In the interview he stressed on a political solution to the Syrian conflict far from any military intervention.

“The solution in Syria must be political,” The Egyptian president said.

He also warned from the repercussions of dividing Syria into territories and emphasised the necessity of respecting its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Al-Sisi also warned from the flow of foreign fighters into Syria to join terrorist groups and called for dealing with these fighters to preserve the international security.

“We should admit that there are tremendous extremist and terrorist elements in Syria,” Al-Sisi said to Sputnik news agency.

“In case of not dealing with them [the terrorist elements] or controlling the situation, these elements wouldn’t remain within Syria but they will spread outside it posing a dangerous threat for many countries,” Al-Sisi added according to SANA.

He also stressed on Egypt’s interest in refreshing its foreign relations and constructing close ties with all countries to distance itself from polarisation.

This interview comes at a time the Syrian Egyptian relations are improving. Since Al-Sisi has become a president, Egypt had a steady reading to the events in Syria.
