Egypt cut all relations with Syrian Regime

(Dp-news)

Cairo- Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said Saturday he had cut all diplomatic ties with Damascus on Saturday and backed a no-fly zone over Syria, pitching the most populous Arab state more firmly against President Bashar al-Assad.

 

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi announced on Saturday cutting diplomatic ties with the Syrian regime led by Bashar Al-Asaad.

"We have decided to close down of the Syrian embassy in Cairo," said Morsi during a popular conference in support of the Syrian uprising organized by Islamist forces at Cairo Indoor Stadium.

 

Egyptian President denounced the intervention in the conflict of powerful Lebanese Shi'ite movement Hezbollah, which recently helped government troops to victory over the rebels in the central Syrian town of Qusayr.



"The Egyptian envoy in Damascus will also be withdrawn." Morsi said.

"There is no space or place for Hezbollah in Syria, Hezbollah must leave Syria. These are serious words," Morsi said.

 

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was delivering a speech at a conference that is part of a Syria solidarity week organized by Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt on Saturday at the Cairo International Conference Centre in Nasr City.

 

Morsi waved Syrian and Egyptian flags as he entered the auditorium packed with 20,000 supporters. The crowd chanted: "From the free revolutionaries of Egypt: We will stamp on you, Bashar!"

 

"The Egyptian people supports the struggle of the Syrian people, materially and morally, and Egypt, its nation, leadership ... and army, will not abandon the Syrian people until it achieves its rights and dignity." Morsi stressed.

 

Morsi said also he was organising an urgent summit of Arab and other Islamic states to discuss the situation in Syria, where the United States has in recent days decided to take steps to arm the rebels.

 

Egypt has not taken an active role in arming the Syrian rebels, but an aide to Morsi said this week that Cairo would not stand in the way of Egyptians who wanted to fight in Syria.

 

Press reports added Saturday that the Egyptian government had long since called for Assad to step down.

The Syria conflict erupted in March 2011 following a bloody regime crackdown on Arab Spring-inspired democracy protests.

 

Damascus says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals. 

The Syrian government keeps telling that West and its regional allies, such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are supporting the militants.
