Putin to visit Egypt, Turkey on Monday

Further escalation of tensions in Middle East region would be unacceptable, says a statement by the Kremlin announcing Putin’s visit


Russian President Vladimir Putin is scheduled to visit Egypt and Turkey on Monday, the Kremlin announced in a Thursday statement.

During the anticipated meeting between the two leaders, issues regarding the stability and security of the Middle East, as well as mutual cooperation projects like the Dabaa Nuclear plant, will be discussed.

President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi received a call from Putin on Thursday, during which the two sides discussed the recent developments in Syria and Libya, asserting that a political solution to both conflicts is needed.

Al-Sisi previously invited Putin to visit Cairo on 4 September for the final contracts-signing ceremony for the Dabaa nuclear power plant, in addition to laying the foundation stone of the project in the city of Dabaa in Marsa Matrouh governorate. The ceremony was expected to be held by the end of 2017, according to previous press statements by Chairperson of the Nuclear Power Plants Authority Amgad Al-Wakeel.

The visits come after Egypt, Turkey, and Russia denounced US President Donald Trump’s Wednesday decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The Kremlin added that Putin will visit Turkey after he received a call from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which was made in the aftermath of Trump’s Jerusalem decision. Both sides expressed their concerns regarding further instability in the Middle East that may stem from the move. Erdogan further informed Putin about his call for an emergency Organisation of Islamic Cooperation summit on 13 December, dedicated to discussing the crisis.

    The focus now is the suffrage rights of Palestinians in the Israeli elections. The young people have had enough of the dangling carrot and know it’s never coming to fruition. They want equal rights as Israelis, not second class status in a second class land subject to Israeli overlords who abuse them. Dissolve the PA,demand equal rights for these victims of apartheid, and let the revolution happen at the ballot box. The civilized way.
