There should be a support for the Syrian, Libyan, and Iraqi armies in their battles against terrorists, Egypt’s President, Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi said in a live television interview with RTP TV on Tuesday.
“There should be international support for the Libyan, Iraqi & Syrian national armies to ensure security in their countries,” Sisi said.
Sisi rejected the idea to deploy Egyptian troops to assist the Syrian government, adding that he believes the Syrian army has to bring back security to the country itself.
The Egiptian president vowed to to deal seriously with terrorists in Syria and to disarm them, in order to preserve the unity of Syria and to rebuild the country.
“Syria has been for five years suffering a deep crisis. Our stance is that we respect the will of the Syrian people,” the Egyptian president said, adding that the political settlement will be the best way to solve the conflict.
