BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – The Egyptian Presidential Spokesman Bassam Radi stated on Wednesday that his country will stand by Syria’s side and will continue to support the Syrian Army and institutions.

In an interview with RT, Radi said that keeping security cannot be achieved but through national armies and governmental institutions, stressing Moscow‘s and Cairo’s agreeing on this point.

Radi said that his country supports only a political solution in Syria, while saying that the war has been incredibly costly.

He pointed out to the “high convergence” between Egypt and Russia for solving issues of the region, stressing the importance of preserving the national state and its territorial integrity.

While Egypt and Syria have limited diplomatic relations, there have been several attempts on both sides to repair their ties and restore their embassies.
