DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:00 P.M.) – Syria’s Intelligence Chief, ‘Ali Mamlouk, made a scheduled visit to Cairo on Sunday to discuss future cooperation with the Egyptian intelligence apparatus.

Mamlouk originally met his Egyptian counterpart in Beirut last month, paving the way for their first official meeting since the outbreak of the Syrian Conflict in 2011.

Syrian-Egyptian relations have recently improved, thanks in large-part to Russia’s diplomatic mediation between the former Arab allies and their push towards rapprochement.

The first apparent shift in this relationship occurred last week, when the Egyptian delegation at the United Nations shunned their Gulf allies and refused to condemn the Syrian government for their military operations in Aleppo.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi has made it clear to Saudi Arabia that his government will not support the war against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

President Sisi believes in a diplomatic solution to the Syrian Crisis; furthermore, his government has taken an active role in mediating between the Syrian opposition and government in order to achieve peace in the region.
