Egypt has been considering participating in the peace efforts in cooperation with other countries that support the process, an official has revealed.
The spokesman for the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ahmed Abu Zeid has said that Egypt is still looking into taking part in the Syrian crisis peace efforts.
This is in response to the declaration of the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
Abu Zeid also said that Egypt will announce its stance on the matter “soon”.
He confirmed that Egyp has been demanding a complete ceasefire and an end to violence since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, and that it has repeatedly declared its support for a political solution to the conflict.
Days ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin said an agreement has been reached on a ceasefire in Syria.
“This agreement we’ve reached is very fragile, as we all understand. They require special attention and patience, professional attitude, and constant contact with our partners,” Putin said.
He added that the agreement is the result of joint efforts by Russia, Iran, and Turkey.
“Great work has been done in cooperation with our partners from Turkey. We know that only recently there was a trilateral meeting in Moscow of the foreign ministers of Russia, Turkey, and Iran, where all of the nations made obligations not only to control, but also to act as guarantors of the peace process in Syria.”
