Sisi: I am not for war, but Gulf security is a red line

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi said on Wednesday his country does not support a military escalation in regional tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Speaking at a press conference in Sharm el-Sheikh Wednesday, he said, when asked about Egypt’s position in the dispute: “I am not for war. We have had our experience with war. The region faces enough turmoil already. We should approach it extremely cautiously.” But El-Sisi then added: “We support our [Saudi] brothers. The security of the Gulf [countries] is a red line.”
