The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is following with great concern the rapid developments in Iraq, which portend an escalation that needs to be avoided; Egypt, therefore, calls for containing the situation and preventing any further escalation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs considers that containment of the situation entails an immediate cessation of all types of regional interventions in the affairs of Arab states and its peoples, which only served to stoke divisions and tension among Arab nationals who eagerly aspire for peace and stability.
