|Iran, Egypt, Turkey, S. Arabia will meet on Syria: Morsi||
TEHRAN – Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has said that Iran, Egypt, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia would meet to discuss the crisis in Syria.
“The quartet which Egypt has called for will meet now,” Morsi stated during his first presidential address to the Arab League in Cairo on Wednesday, Reuters reported.
He did not provide further details.
Morsi had put forward the proposal for the establishment of such a group during an emergency Islamic summit that was held in Mecca on August 14 and 15.
An unidentified Egyptian delegate said that the president’s comments meant the four states were talking about what action could be taken, but the formal formation of the quartet was still under discussion, Reuters reported on Wednesday.
He said that no date had been set for its representatives to meet.
