Egypt is currently coordinating with the countries bordering the Red Sea to secure maritime navigation, the country’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said Thursday, as Houthi attacks against ships passing the Red Sea continue, leading to the establishment of an international US-led coalition.

All countries bordering the Red Sea share the responsibility for upholding freedom of navigation and facilitating access to the Egyptian Suez Canal, Shoukry told a briefing in Cairo with his British counterpart David Cameron, whose country is a co-participant in the US-led coalition.

Shoukry said he discussed the developments related to the Red Sea with Cameron, adding: ‘Egypt, from its side, will coordinate to facilitate the free transfer of goods and to combat any side effects.’

Earlier this week, the US unveiled its plans to set up a US-led multinational naval protection initiative, dubbed “Operation Prosperity Guardian”, to safeguard Red Sea shipping amid the ongoing attacks by Yemen’s Houthi rebels on commercial
ships.
