The Egyptian government voiced regret Saturday
that a group of citizens protested outside the Saudi Embassy in Cairo and the
consequent acts committed by some nationals.
Official news agency (Mena) quoted a government source as affirming that
Egypt and its people highly appreciated the Saudi government and people.
Hundreds of Egyptians protested outside the Saudi embassy in Cairo earlier
this week, calling on Riyadh to free Ahmad Al-Jezawi who was arrested in Saudi
Arabia for reportedly insulting King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz.
This triggered Saudi Arabia to recall its ambassador for consultation,
closed the embassy and two consulates in Alexandria and Suez.
Meanwhile, some 20 Egyptian political parties and parliamentarians
expressed concern over the dispute between Cairo and Riyadh.
They rejected any acts targeting Saudi Arabia, and urged King Abdullah to
defuse the crisis.
Commercial flights between Egypt and Saudi Arabia were not affected, and no
passenger was asked to cancel his or her trip.
