Egypt Foreign Minister - Gulf's Security a Red Line

Egypt's Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr said, on Tuesday 5/2/2013 that Egypt's relations with any country will not be at the expense of security of another country.

This came in statements after a meeting by the Non-Aligned Movement's Palestine Committee, held under Iran's chairmanship on the sidelines of the Islamic Foreign Ministers meeting.

"The security of the Gulf is a red line and Egypt will not tolerate any attempt to harm it," Egypt's top diplomat added.

Asked if Egypt's new approach toward Iran could affect the Gulf security, Amr asserted: "Egypt has a clear-cut stance in this issue. This stance has been repeatedly declared by the President and the Foreign Minister."
