Egypt is trying to defuse tension between the United States and Syria, the Egyptian foreign minister said Tuesday, days before the appearance of a UN report that might turn the world spotlight on Syria. "There is an active and continuous Egyptian effort to defuse the tension in the Syrian-American situation and prevent its explosion" Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit told reporters.
