Bahrain reiterates its total rejection of any interference in the internal affairs of Egypt and supports the efforts exerted by President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the steps he has taken to combat terrorism, preserve the security and stability of Egypt and pursue its strategic and active role at the Arab, regional and international levels, he added.

In this context we commend the pivotal role played by Egypt to reach a ceasefire in Gaza. We highly appreciate its hosting, in collaboration with Norway, the international conference of support to Palestine and reconstruction of the Gaza Strip next month. We highly appreciate as well the great role played by UNRWA, he underlined.
