UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi discussed, Wednesday, in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, ways to contain the situation and not escalate in the region and maintain the security and safety of the Gulf region.
This came during his meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sameh Shoukry, according to the official Egypt News Agency.
The meeting dealt with “exchanging visions on developments in the Middle East and the Gulf, especially in light of the challenges facing the region.”
The two sides also stressed, “the importance of continuing mutual coordination to contain the situation in the region, not escalation, and maintaining the security and safety of the Gulf.”
According to the same source, the two sides agreed to “support all efforts aimed at finding a comprehensive political solution to the crisis in Libya.”
Since April 4, the militias of Khalifa Hifter have launched an attack to take control of Tripoli, the headquarters of the internationally recognized “National Accord” government, which aborted the efforts of the United Nations to hold a dialogue conference between the Libyans within an international roadmap to deal with the internal conflict.
The region is also witnessing escalating tension after the Iranian Revolutionary Guards announced the targeting of two American bases in Iraq with dozens of ballistic missiles, at dawn on Wednesday, in response to the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the “Jerusalem” Corps, with a US raid in Baghdad last Friday.
