“I have wanted to share with you today the five axes on which Egypt’s vision to face current challenges is based to put our region on the road of sustainable and comprehensive stability,” the president said.
Arab’s top issue
The first axis affirms the importance of reaching a “fair, comprehensive and ultimate” solution to the Palestinian issue on the basis of the two-state solution based on the relevant international resolutions, El-Sisi said.
Democracy, human rights
Second, El-Sisi affirmed the importance of building societies on the foundations of democracy, citizenship, equality, respect for human rights, renouncement of extremist ideologies and upholding the concept of national interests.
Arab national security
The third axis affirms that the Arab national security is “indivisible” and that the capabilities of the Arab countries in cooperation with their partners are sufficient to provide the appropriate framework to face any threats to the Arab world, El-Sisi said.
In this regard, El-Sisi stressed that “the principles of respect for the sovereignty of states, non-interference in their internal affairs, besides fraternity and equality are the governor of the inter-Arab relations.”
Counterterrorism, removing mercenaries
The fourth axis is concerned with terrorism, which remains a “main challenge from which the Arab countries have suffered from over the past decades” and which is supported by some foreign powers, El-Sisi said.
“We underscore our commitment to counter all forms and manifestations of terrorism and extremist thought with the aim of eliminating its organisations and armed militias spreading across many areas of our Arab World,” El-Sisi said.
Facing global crises
The fifth axis affirms the need for enhancing international cooperation and solidarity to boost the capabilities of the countries of the region in facing mega and emerging global crises, the president said.
This includes shortage in food supply, disruption in energy markets, water security and climate change, the president said.
Jeddah, KSA in mid-July. Cannot imagine what the heat and the humidity off the Red Sea must be like. Even worse than Cincinnati or St. Louis. /s
Currently 94 F, wind 16 mph from the NW, humidity 35%.
Daytime highs run about 100 every day.
Only suicidal Israelis will go for the so-called “Two State Solution” which will look more like the “Final Solution,” if it comes to be.
Not an easy task.
There are two kinds of Egyptians. There are real Egyptians and there are arabs. One is less insane than the other.
Abdel Fattah Saeed Hussein Khalil el-Sisi spews buzzwords better than some. The subtext is, lip service to the Arab squatters and terrorists in Israel, but Arab unity against non-Arab threats such as Turkey and Iran.
Egypt's al-Sisi has pushed for a pumped diversion of part of the Congo River waters (the Congo is by water volume the second largest river in the world, after the Amazon) over some mountains and into the Nile.
