Al-Sisi stressed that Egypt refuses to seize and annex part of Syrian territory.

The Egyptian President pointed out that the tripartite summit agreed on the need to find political solutions to the crises in the region, pointing out that unilateral practices are detrimental to the interests of the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean, in reference to Turkey's unilateral practices and exploration in Cyprus.
