Egyptian Foreign Minister denies Washington sought Arab countries’ cooperation in war against Baghdad
Egypt’s Foreign Minister Ahmed Maher denied on Saturday a media report, which said Washington had asked Arab countries if they would cooperate in a war against Iraq.
"I haven't heard such a thing," Maher replied when asked about a report aired Thursday on Qatar's Al-Jazeera satellite television channel.
Al-Jazeera said the United States had written to eleven different Arab countries, including Egypt, asking if they would be willing to cooperate in a war against Baghdad and giving them a period of one month to reply. (Albawaba.com)
