The Arab Republic of Egypt expresses its deep concern over the ongoing military escalation on the Syrian scene, which involves implications regarding the safety of our brotherly Syrian people, and threatens the understandings reached regarding the de-escalation zones.

Egypt affirms its unequivocal rejection of the use of any internationally banned weapons on the Syrian territories, and calls for a transparent international investigation in accordance with the internationally recognized mechanisms and references.

The Arab Republic of Egypt expresses solidarity with the brotherly Syrian people in order to achieve its aspirations to live in safety and stability, and to preserve its national capabilities and territorial integrity, through reaching a political consensus that is inclusive of all Syrian political components, and distanced from attempts to undermine its hopes and aspirations. Egypt further calls upon the international community and major powers to shoulder their responsibilities in advancing the peaceful solution of the Syrian crisis away from polarization, and help ensuring access of humanitarian aid to those trapped and affected by the continuation of the armed conflict.
