Egypt wants Arab nations to have say in amended nuclear deal

Egypt says it wants Arab countries to have a role in decisions about amending the nuclear treaty with Iran from which US President Donald Trump just withdrew.

In a statement, the Egyptian foreign ministry says it has followed the US decision closely, and that it sees a need to preserve the “security and stability of the region.”

Egypt says it’s important that all concerned Arab parties participate in any dialogue on the future situation in the region, in particular the possibility of amending the deal

Cairo calls “on all regional powers, including Iran, to stop adopting policies or actions against the security of the Arab region,” adding that it “hopes that the current developments will not result in any armed conflicts in the region.”
