Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi accused Qatar and Turkey and the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood of spending millions of dollars to spread chaos in the Arab world.

“Qatar, Turkey and the international organization of the Brotherhood are currently establishing many companies, newspapers and websites,” Sisi said on Sunday at a meeting with newspaper chief editors, the Egypt Independent reported.

“They allocated hundreds of millions of dollars to spread chaos among the Arab nation, destabilizing Egypt and destroying the Egyptians,” he said.

The Egyptian president also voiced his support for the establishment of a Palestinian state and said major efforts were being made to meet the humanitarian needs of the people in Gaza through the Rafah crossing. However, he added, Egyptian security is tied together with this.

Meanwhile, at the same meeting, Sisi denied reports that the country carried out military operations in Libya.

“Our forces are stationed inside our territories,” he said according to Egypt’s State Information Service.

On Syria, Sisi said Egypt does not favor any side in the conflict, but seeks a political solution that maintains the country’s unity as a state.
