(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Some Persian Gulf Countries have requested that Egypt send a warship to the Persian Gulf as tensions with Qatar escalate.
The Commander of Egypt’s Navy, Read Admiral Ahmad Khaled Hassan, said that Qatar is the cause of the region’s instability because of its support of terrorist groups, and this is why many Arab countries have opted for cutting their ties with it. Of course, some countries, such as Iran and Turkey, have supported Qatar because of their own interests, with Turkey sending some thousands of soldiers to Qatar.
The developments in the regions have led one of the countries of the Persian Gulf to request that Egypt’s navy send one of its warships to an area close to the Persian Gulf so that they would be prepared for anything so that in case anything happens it can be ready for operations. This decision was faced by opposition from some figures from Persian Gulf countries, and some are lobbying to resolve these differences.
According to the revelations of Ahmad Khaled Hassan, this move is in no way intended to raise tension, and is only done with the intent to stabilize the region. So far, the UAE and Bahrain have expressed their approval of the Egyptian warship entering the Persian Gulf.
