Egypt expressed deep concern over the current military escalations witnessed in Syria, warning of their impact on the safety of the Syrian people and threat to the understandings reached over determining "de-escalation zones" in the conflict-hit Arab country.
Egypt stressed, in a press statement released by the Foreign Ministry on Saturday 14/04/2018, its absolute rejection of the use of internationally-banned weapons in the Syrian territories and demanded that a transparent international probe be conducted into reported attacks there by banned arms in accordance with international mechanisms and terms of reference.
It expressed solidarity with the brotherly Syrian people and support for their hopes to live in peace and stability and preserve the security, safety and territorial integrity of their nation.
It also called for reaching an all-inclusive political accord among all political players in Syria to ward off attempts to undermine the aspirations and expectations of the Syrian people.
It urged the world community and major countries to bear their responsibilities and work for realizing a peaceful settlement of the Syrian crisis away from polarization bids.
Also it called for securing the arrival of humanitarian assistance to Syrians trapped and afflicted by the long-running armed conflict.
