Ambassador Ahmed Abu Zeid, the official spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that 

Foreign minister Sameh Shoukry made two phone calls on Sunday, April 14, with Dr. Hussein Amir Abdollahian, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran, and Israel Katz, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel, amid the dangerous military escalation as a result of the launch of Iranian offensive attack against Israeli targets. 

The Minister of Foreign Affairs expressed Egypt's deep concern as a result of the continued state of unprecedented military escalation between Iran and Israel in a way that threatens the situation, and threatens the stability of the region.

Shoukry called on his Iranian and Israeli counterparts to exercise the utmost self-restraint and refrain from brinkmanship policies and mutual provocations that would increase the state of tension and instability in the Middle East.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs stressed Egypt’s readiness to intensify its efforts in cooperation with its partners in order to defuse the current crisis, which has begun to take a dangerous escalatory turn, especially as it coincides with the continuation of the Gaza Strip crisis, the daily suffering of the Palestinian people, and the escalation of tension in multiple hotspots in the region.

Shoukry stressed Egypt's firm position demanding a ceasefire in Gaza, facilitating the entry of humanitarian aid, and rejecting any measures aimed at displacing Palestinians outside their lands.
