Cairo, Sep 15 (IANS/WAM) Egypt’s Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy Sunday said his country is following with great interest the agreement reached by the US and Russia on dealing with the Syrian chemical weapons issue which should pave the way for the desired political solution to the Syrian crisis.
The official MENA news agency quoted the Egyptian foreign ministry as saying that Fahmy has expressed his hope that the agreement would open the way for a conference as soon as possible.
He called on the Syrian parties that will participate in the conference to work to heal without delay to save the lives of Syrian citizens.
He appealed to the parties to bring regional security and stability in order to achieve the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people in a democratic state that would allow all Syrians to participate in building their common future.
The foreign minister expressed the hope that this step regarding Syrian chemical weapons would help towards the introduction to the Middle East of a zone free of all weapons of mass destruction – nuclear, chemical and biological – without exception or discrimination.
