Egypt has been playing a leading role in supporting the Arab issues, foremost among which are the issues of the Arab-Israeli conflict, Iraq, Sudan, the Arab League reform and boosting the joint Arab action.
Egypt's Arab policies are governed by a number of basic elements as follows:
- Drawing up a joint vision on serving the supreme Arab interests and maintaining Arab national security.
- Mutual respect to the sovereignty of the Arab countries and non-interference in the internal affairs.
- Maintaining independence of the Arab decision-making process.
- Enhancing ties of solidarity among the Arab countries and seeking peaceful means in solving the Arab disputes.
- Preserving the Arab resources and boosting the development process in the Arab countries.
- Boosting the economic and trade ties between the Arab countries with the ultimate goal of establishing the common Arab market.
- Respect to the pan-Arab treaties such as the Arab League Charter and the joint Arab defense treaty.
- Establishing good relations with non-Arab countries in the region based on principles of mutual respect.
