Egypt says it supports Saudi Arabia in rights row with Canada
Egypt said on Tuesday it supported Saudi Arabia in a political row with Canada, and stood in "solidarity" with the Gulf Arab kingdom against foreign interference in its domestic affairs.
Cairo's foreign ministry said on its Facebook page that it was "concerned by the crisis between Saudi Arabia and Canada, which is a result of the negative tendency by some international ... sides of meddling in the internal affairs of countries in the region," without elaborating.
Egypt saw crucial U.S. military aid frozen last year over its own human rights record amid one of its toughest ever crackdowns on dissent, but that decision was reversed last month.
