Egypt supports any efforts by Islamic countries to counter terror and is intending to join them, an Egyptian Foreign Ministry spokesman said Tuesday, commenting on the new Riyadh-led coalition to fight terrorism.

CAIRO (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, local media reported that Saudi Arabia had set up a 34-member coalition to counteract terrorism.

"There is no contradiction between the Islamic coalition and the suggestion to create a united Arab force [suggested by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi]," Ahmed Abu Zeid told reporters.

"The first is supposed to work on a larger territory to fight terror, the other in the framework of the Arab world, fighting everything all that threatens Arabs’ security," Zeid added.
