Iran, Egypt FMs Discuss Bilateral Relations, Gaza Crisis

TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, and his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry, engaged in a crucial phone call on Thursday evening, focusing on bilateral relations and regional developments, particularly the Gaza war.

During the conversation, the ministers shed light on recent bilateral developments, underscoring talks between their country's presidents in Riyadh and a recent phone call. Both ministers expressed their commitment to maintaining ongoing contacts and scheduling future meetings.

Amirabdollahian and Shoukry dedicated time to discuss the implementation of agreements between the presidents of Egypt and Iran, demonstrating a shared commitment to diplomatic ties.

Addressing escalating tensions in the West Asian region, Amirabdollahian highlighted concerns about the tension-promoting approach of certain regional actors. He attributed the root cause of the crisis to the ongoing war against Gaza, occupation, and the atrocities of the Zionist regime. Amirabdollahian asserted, "Iran is not seeking to expand the war, as we do not consider war as a solution to the growing crises in the region."

Reiterating the call for peace, Amirabdollahian emphasized, "All countries should focus on an immediate cessation of war and crimes against Gaza and on a political solution to the crisis in Gaza and the western border."

Expressing gratitude, Iran's Foreign Minister thanked Egypt's government for its humanitarian aid to Gaza residents. He further announced Iran's readiness to provide essential items needed by the oppressed people of Palestine, with cooperation from the Egyptian government and the United Nations.

Both sides emphasized the necessity of continued diplomatic efforts to halt the crimes of the Zionist regime against the oppressed people of Palestine. They also voiced opposition to Zionist plans to forcibly relocate Palestinians to Egypt and Jordan.

The Foreign Ministers of the Islamic Republic and Egypt further underscored the importance of collective efforts by regional countries to preserve stability and peace. They considered the cessation of the war against Gaza as the key to establishing peace and stability in the entire region.

The comprehensive telephone conversation also touched upon a discussion of developments in the Red Sea, showcasing the depth and breadth of the Foreign Ministers' deliberations.
