Egypt: FM - Govt Condemns Terrorism at All Forms

Egypt is condemning all forms of terrorism, said Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr on Thursday 07/06/2012.

Amr was reading Egypt's speech at an international conference on terrorism, which is being held in Istanbul. He added that all efforts by the international community should be pooled together for fighting terrorism.

Egypt is totally rejecting associating terrorism or any form of violence with any religion or creed or culture, he said, asserting the necessity of studying the root causes of terrorism with a view to handling them.

Minister Amr underlined on this score the importance of steering away from double standardization while handling international terrorism and observing the criteria of legitimacy for guaranteeing the peoples' rights to self-determination.

On the other hand, Amr called for massing international support for the efforts exerted to render UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan's plan for Syria a success, for being the only way to solve the crisis and halt bloodshed.

Amr said that the Syrian opposition should reach a joint vision for settling the political crisis in their country.

Amr, underlined the importance of garnering all international support for the plan of joint UN-AL envoy to Syria Kofi Annan.

The six-point plan is the only avenue available for settling the Syrian crisis without shedding more blood, he said, adding that Egypt has time and again highlighted the necessity that the Syrian opposition should adopt a unified stance for settling the crisis.
