“Never since the rule of Mohammed Ali did Egypt face such critical situation,” Moussa told Al-Rai newspaper Wednesday. “The Egyptian state is facing an important test; to be or not to be.”
Moussa said terrorism which is Egypt fighting now is aiming at disrupting the State’s moves towards a better future and should be firmly dealt with.
“We are facing a major problem in Sinai and the State will never allow Sinai to be outside of the Egyptian sovereignty,” he said.
As for Egypt’s relations with Turkey, he said they are not relations between the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Justice and Development Party in Turkey. “Arab-Turkish relations should not be confined to the fate of a party ruling here or there.”
Disagreements between Arab countries are being handled in a balanced way through the Arab League, he said.
