September 3, 2013
Cairo – September 2, 2013 – (SANA-B. Mousa / F. Allafi) – The Egyptian national forces stressed its stance on supporting Syria’s people and government in facing the U.S. threats of launching an aggression on it, adding that Syria is a part of the Arab and Egyptian national security.
At a press conference, the National Alliance of the Egyptian Revolutionary Forces called on the Arab nation to realize the plots hatched by the US and Britain to fragment the region.
The national forces of Egypt strongly condemned the Arab League stance regarding Syria, rejecting to hand another Arab country to the NATO as the League did with Libya.
Tahani al-Jabali, who recited the forces’ statement, said, “As a response to the U.S. current threats on Syria, we clearly announce our full support to Syria’s people and government in facing the conspiracy and aggression which threaten the national security of Egypt,” affirming that the national security of Egypt is based on that of Syria.
She added, “We clearly announce our adherence to the Arab destiny and our rejection of the aggression on Syria and the terrorism which is fueled by the Muslim Brotherhood who are supported by Turkey and its NATO partners.”
The statement demanded the interim government of Egypt to support Syria against the U.S. potential aggression, calling for restoring the Egyptian-Syrian relations on the highest levels.
The statement pointed out that the role played by Turkey stems from its membership in the NATO and its strategic relations with Israel which were revived by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The statement said, ” We hope that Erdogan remembers that he is not Sultan Abdul-Hamid and Egypt is not a state subordinate to his country either,” adding, ” Egypt is greater than being undermined by such a despicable person.”
