    The Egyptian president underscored that it is crucial for any political settlement to preserve a country's unity and territorial integrity.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Political settlement of conflicts in Syria, Libya and Yemen requires the countries' unity and territorial integrity, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi said Friday.

    "We have witnessed the significant human suffering caused by the ongoing conflicts and crises in countries such as Syria, Libya and Yemen. Egypt believes that it is crucial for any political settlement to preserve the countries’ unity, territorial integrity, national institutions and resources," Sisi told The Hindu newspaper in an interview.

    He added that the fight against Daesh and other terrorist organization needs a comprehensive approach aimed at cutting of funding and weaponry supply.

    On Thursday, Sisi arrived in India for a three-day visit that is expected to include meetings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee.

    Daesh is a designated terrorist organization outlawed in the United States, Russia and numerous other countries throughout the world.
