Ambassador Ahmed Abu Zeid, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, commented on the possibility of Egypt threatening to suspend the peace agreement with Israel, if the latter launches a military operation in the Palestinian city of Rafah.

He said during a phone call to the “Al-Hekaya” program, presented by journalist Amr Adeeb on MBC Misr satellite channel, on Monday evening, that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Presidency of the Republic did not issue any statements in this regard, other than the statements of Minister Sameh Shoukry.

He pointed out that Shukri confirmed that Egypt’s position is clear, adding: “The minister said that the peace agreement has existed for 4 decades and there is a mutual commitment from both sides to it… This position is currently.”

He noted that the Ministry does not know the source of the conversations circulating in the international media regarding the possibility of suspending the agreement, stressing the importance of paying attention to the state’s official positions in this crisis, and interacting and responding to them.

He pointed out that “the situation is very tense in Rafah; Because of the humanitarian catastrophe, and the accumulation of 1.5 million Palestinians,” he warned, “Any large-scale bombing operations herald the explosion of the situation and many scenarios, and the Egyptian state is preparing to confront any of them.”

He continued: “If the state puts forward a position, it will express it officially. There is no doubt that Egypt has corridors that it can use and express in the appropriate manner and manner, in light of monitoring the situation and developments on the ground.”
