Egypt Warns Iran to Stop Regional Meddling

(AP-New York Times) Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said Wednesday that Iran must stop "meddling" in the Middle East and the security of Arab Gulf countries must not be threatened, backing Saudi Arabia amid its mounting tensions with Iran. "The region has enough instability and challenges as it is. We don't need any new complications involving Iran or Hizbullah," he said. "Gulf security is a red line and others must stop meddling in our affairs and not work to escalate tensions. We in Egypt believe that Arab and Gulf security and any threat to Gulf nations is a threat to our own national security."
