Egyptian Foreign Ministry warned from the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood attempts to strain Egypt’s relations with its sister Arab states.

Foreign ministry spokesman Ahmed Abu Zeid affirmed that Egypt highly values and respects its firm relations with the state and people of Kuwait – the bonds between the two countries have been proven historically.

In response to negative and false news perpetuated by the Muslim brotherhood media to create strife between Egypt and the state of Kuwait and other countries in the Gulf, Abu Zeid said that Egypt values the deep ties and profound relations with Kuwait and the neighboring Gulf states.

The Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman added that despite the State Department's firm policy not to comment on such suspicious acts, which reflect only the desperation of their perpetrators, Egypt chose to assert the close relationship between the Egyptian and Kuwaiti people and the respect shared for the State of Kuwait in supporting Egypt.

New York Times newspaper published, earlier, a report affirming that it received recordings of a colonel in the Egyptian intelligence that rise suspicion regarding the Egyptian stance towards US President Donald Trump decision on Jerusalem.

Egypt responded through Egypt State Information Service that it is inappropriate for such a newspaper to publish these claims.
