Egypt's stability 'very important' for Arabs

World Bulletin / News Desk

Jordanian Prime Minister Abdalla Ensour said Saturday that Egypt's stability was "very important" for the Arab world.

Speaking during a meeting with Egyptian Premier Hazem al-Beblawi, Ensour said Jordan supported the choices of the Egyptian people on June 30 (the mass protests that led to the ouster of elected president Mohamed Morsi).

"King Abdullah II was the first Arab leader to visit Egypt following June 30," Ensour said, according to a cabinet statement.

He added that Jordan was looking forward to "bolstering cooperation with Egypt in all fields", congratulating the Egyptians on the 1973 military victory against Israel.

Egypt will mark on Sunday the 40th anniversary of the 1973 military victory against Israel to regain the Sinai Peninsula.

Al-Beblawi, for his part, said the October victory "is a victory for all Arabs, not only the Egyptians".

Ensour arrived in Cairo earlier Saturday on his first visit to Egypt since Morsi's overthrow by the military three months ago.

He is scheduled to meet interim President Adly Mansour and attend the celebrations.
