I shared Eritrean Ambassador to Cairo, Vasil friend Karim Jaber Selassie important dialogue included intellectuals Egyptian and Eritrean Bconin worried about the Arab and African table. I wish I could find it documented, and may be our old friend Mr. / Habib Othman, media adviser to the Embassy of Eritrea, has made the task of documentation, what is known about the accuracy of the knowledge and experience Routes Egyptian media.
In this meeting mourned Ambassador Vasil Jperselassa -bkhvh inherited from his mother’s blood-Egyptian regime of former Egyptian revolution June 30 absence from Africa, and its reluctance in employing the common denominators strategy -the Ktherh- between Egypt and Eritrea, in order to achieve the national interests. The two countries that control the joints that are important to the Red Sea, the southern entrance at the Bab al-Mandab and the northern entrance at the Suez Canal. The two Émhma essentially what is happening in the Horn of Africa near the Nile and the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Gulf basin. The two Taatmasan with common strategic spaces Arab and African. Alerted me to invite the Eritrean ambassador to the conference to discuss the strategic issues of the Red Sea combines riparian States to certain risks and other potential watching Egyptian national security in the Red Sea. What happened in Yemen finally given inhabited danger signal does not have the luxury of ignoring Egypt ignoring her sight. Pain is for the organization «Qaeda» terrorist firm foothold in southern Yemen, and became the Houthis and Ansar Allah Bparwahm political which is taking place in the orbit of the Iranian legislator are upper floor owners in Sanaa, as well as increased international ambitions in the Red Sea?
These geopolitical changes at Bab al-Mandab would constitute a potential threat to the Suez Canal, Egypt can not tolerate it or be complacent about to engage in individual or collective, which included the Red Sea security arrangements, and the safety of navigation and control what is happening in the warm waters. And the security of the Red Sea with the importance of a grand strategy to strengthen Egypt’s national security, and derives its strategic importance of its geographical location, which provided for regional and international forces access to the Indo-Atlantic and the Mediterranean, and increased the importance of the discovery of oil in the Gulf region, and will increase in the future importance with expansion International Trade of China and East Asian countries, it is estimated that crossed in 2030 about 30 percent of China’s exports destined for the West via the Suez Canal, and including making it all the geographic, political, military and economic standards of the most important hotbeds of international conflict, as well as major importance in maintaining national security Arab in general and the security of the country bordering the Red Sea and the security of the Horn of Africa in particular.
Because of its importance to the world economy and international security and stability has become a coveted major international powers, especially the US, Israeli and Iranian ambitions.
Each of these three forces which causes related to national interests in the Red Sea and the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Gulf, regardless of the interests of the riparian countries and most Arab countries.
These ambitions and carry fears of turning the Red Sea to the epicenter of the conflicts and wars, regional and international interventions active. Some of these international ambitions may find in the recent regional developments justified to achieve its objectives and the opportunity to maximize their interests. Did not come raging political unrest in Yemen, the forces of international terrorism such as al-Qaeda, and some of the foreign agendas fundamentalist movements such as the Houthis, close to the Red Sea and the Bab al-Mandab ?! Ulm led state collapse in Somalia to the dominance of «Muslim youth organization» of the base on the joints of the government in Mogadishu ?! Not constitute piracy in the Arabian Sea threat of international trade and maritime navigation in the Suez Canal?!.
These regional developments have been risk must warn them and to remedy its consequences, a «internationalization risk», which may lead to grab foreign powers vested rights in the Red Sea and the Horn of African inconsistent with the requirements of the Arab sovereignty. Being present military under the anti-piracy stream may be misused to achieve Israeli interests or Iranian or American through pressure on the countries in the region and interference in its internal affairs. Orgy foreign fleets were fed in the Arab and Gulf of Aden Sea under the pretext of combating maritime piracy doubts hovering over responsibility for some of the major foreign countries for «making» piracy groups and funding, to find a pretext for the survival of these fleets, and get a permanent military bases in the scattered islands in the Red Sea entrance. International trusteeship may bring on the Red Sea and his navigational damage emphasizing the six Arab countries bordering it, especially that this guardianship may be away from the United Nations, which threatens to conflict of certain interests between the incoming countries have ambitions and the authentic have fixed their rights in the Red Sea and natural wealth. Internationalization has also aims with the aim to to find a foothold for Israel in Somalia, which controls the southern entrance of the Red Sea, which Israel is seeking to secure it from the domination of Islamic forces fundamentalism may impede the safe passage to East Africa, South Asia and threaten the security of its ally Ethiopia, which gives a speech at the Red Sea Affairs provide them with the possibility of the siege of the Arab countries and tighten its grip on the Red Sea entrance to the South, and to anticipate any naval blockade Arabs in the future, which is not forgotten after the Egyptian naval blockade of Bab el Mandeb in the October 1973 war, and at the time was an Arab Red Lake Sea closed par excellence!
The fight against international terrorism and the protection of the marine navigation in the Suez Canal and secure the economic interests of our brothers in the Arabian Gulf and Horn are all sufficient reasons for the interest of Egypt to secure the Red Sea and weave bonds close strategic relations with all involved in this security in the two regions the Arab and African
