Abul Gheit Denies Egypt Arming Lebanese Groups

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit denied Cairo was arming Lebanese Sunni groups.

He also denied Egypt was training or financing these groups.

"This is a lie," Abul Gheit said in a television interview.

"Some people in Lebanon want to have a single control over the country, and this issue is linked to Iran," he stressed.

"Financing, arming or training of militias is against Egypt's method, because this issue will lead to the destruction of Lebanon," Abul Gheit thought.

He said Saudi Arabia, like Egypt, agrees on the need to support Lebanon.
