Cairo: Egypt's President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi on Saturday dispatched his foreign minister for talks with Arab nations over the regional crisis triggered by the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al Hariri, the ministry said.
Hariri's resignation has plunged Lebanon into crisis.
Egypt's Foreign minister Sameh Shoukry will tour Jordan, and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries for bilateral talks, but also to discuss regional developments with a message from Sisi, the ministry statement said.
"The foreign minister's tour comes in the framework of permanent consultations between Egypt and Arab brothers on mutual relations and the conditions in the region, especially in the shadow of developments in Lebanon's political arena," it said.
A foreign ministry spokesman said the minister will confirm Egypt's position on the need for Arab solidarity and to avoid negative fallout on regional security.
