Egypt invites neighbours excluding Israel to discuss piracy threats
APA-Cairo (Egypt) Egyptian authorities have announced that they have
invited Arab countries bordering the Red Sea as well as Eritrea, to take
part in meeting billed for November in Cairo on ways of ending the
threat posed by pirates in the Gulf of Eden off the coast of Somalia.
Egyptian Foreign Minister, Ahmed Abul Gheit said Saturday that Egypt
invited Eritrea despite being a non-Arab state but as a riparian State
of the Red Sea.
He said the meeting will examine the responses that the United Nations
Security Council, NATO and European countries were given to the threat.
Meanwhile, APA has learnt from informed sources in Cairo that Israel was
not invited to the meeting despite the fact that the country is a
riparian of the Red Sea in the port of Eilat.
