Egypt’s overseas minister met Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Monday in what’s the first go to by a prime Egyptian envoy to Syria since its civil battle started in 2011. A big indicator of therapeutic relations between President Bashar al-Assad and Arab nations.

Assad has benefited from an outpouring of Arab help since devastating earthquakes hit his nation and neighbouring Turkey this month, serving to to ease the diplomatic isolation he has confronted over Syria’s civil battle which started in 2011.

“I had the consideration this morning to fulfill with President Bashar Al-Assad to convey to His Excellency a message from His Excellency President Al-Sisi, a message of solidarity and sympathy with the Syrian folks and our readiness to supply no matter help we will to confront the results of the earthquake,” stated Sameh Shoukry, Egyptian International Minister.

When horrible earthquakes struck his nation and neighboring Turkey earlier this month, Assad has benefitted from an outpouring of Arab solidarity, which has helped to reduce the diplomatic isolation he has endured on account of Syria’s civil battle, which started a decade in the past.

“The relations between the 2 peoples are well-established and powerful. We’re at all times engaged on solidarity and to confront the challenges dealing with the Syrian folks, and we sit up for Syria to beat the implications of this earthquake,” added Sameh Shoukry.

Whereas Cairo and Damascus have largely maintained relations in the course of the battle, the Cairo-based Arab League suspended Syria in 2011 and another Arab nations have severed ties with it.

Cairo’s relations with Ankara have been frosty since a 2013 coup that propelled Sisi to energy, deposing Islamist president Mohamed Morsi and outlawing his Muslim Brotherhood, many members of which had sought refuge in Turkey.

In November, Sisi and Erdogan shook arms in Qatar, in what the Egyptian presidency heralded as a brand new starting of their ties.
