CAIRO – 17 November 2017: Yemeni Ambassador to Cairo Mohammed Ali Maram emphasized that Egypt’s current foreign policy is putting the country back on the ‘positive’ development track, empowering it to restore its pioneer leading role in the region under the leadership of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
In his statement, the ambassador praised the vital role played by Egypt in settling the South Sudan bloody conflicts that led to many deaths and left others internally and externally displaced. Egypt coordinated and hosted the signing ceremony of Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) Declaration of Unification on Thursday; also named the Cairo Declaration.
Maram said that through the moderation process, Egypt re-discovered its African roots. This, according to Maram, occurred as a result of the multiple meetings and visits that Sisi shared with African leaders during the previous two years to end conflicts in Africa without any foreign interference.
The ambassador also referred to the violence and chaos in the Arab region, a matter that incites Egypt to take charge in deterring the risks associated with violence and chaos; confronting these unprecedented challenges.
The tour embarked on by Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry to Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and UAE assured Egypt’s pioneering role in these difficult conditions affecting the Arab region.
Meanwhile, Maram stressed the importance of historic relations between Egypt and Yemen, expressing his appreciation for Egypt’s stance beside the Yemeni people. Maram called on Arab countries and the United Nations to take a stronger stance toward the Yemeni crisis.
He also appreciated Sisi’s hosting of the Yemeni refugees in Egypt, who fled Yemen due to Houthis violations.
