Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi welcomed the maritime agreement between Egypt, Greece and Cyprus, and said that he had agreed with the leaders of the two countries to confront “provocative and escalatory policies” in the eastern Mediterranean region, in a clear reference to Turkey.

Al-Sisi accused Turkey indirectly of destabilizing the region and sending mercenaries to neighboring countries, and said that “the three countries reject any foreign military presence in Syria.”

The Egyptian President’s statements came during a joint press conference with Cypriot President Nikos Ansatasiades and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in the Cypriot capital, Nicosia.

“The cooperation between the three countries in the issue of extracting gas from the eastern Mediterranean is not only an example of international cooperation and preserving the stability of the region, but rather an agreement on joint gas projects to benefit from huge sources of gas in the eastern Mediterranean region for the benefit of all parties,” Al-Sisi said. A country with its sovereign rights. “

Al-Sisi praised the two agreements to demarcate the maritime borders with Cyprus and Greece, describing them as two agreements reached in the spirit of international law and the United Nations charters that govern the laws of the sea.
