Egypt stressed to Germany on Saturday its rejection of the policy of territorial expansion and creation of tension adopted by some regional players in the east Mediterranean.
According to an official statement, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry discussed in a phone call, with his German counterpart Heiko Mass, several regional issues of common interest and means of boosting bilateral ties.
They discussed efforts made on restoring stability to the east Mediterranean region, especially amid the recent growing tension over controversy arising from drilling rights by Turkey with two of Egypt's main allies: Greece and Cyprus.
Shoukry affirmed Egypt’s continuous cooperation and coordination with its neighbours and various friend countries to attain aspired peace and security for all the people of the region.
The phone call also witnessed an exchange of viewpoints on the developments of the Palestinian cause and the efforts to revive the peace process based on a two-state solution under international legitimacy.
The discussions on Palestine came following the latest ministerial meeting held in Jordan’s Amman on the topic of Palestine and in participation by Egypt, Jordon, Germany and France.
The two ministers also tackled bilateral relations, where they praised developing ties between the two countries in various fields.
