Egypt supports the political solution to the Syrian crisis, said Egypt's newly installed Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy after a meeting with new head of the Syrian National Coalition opposition group Ahmed al-Jarba in Cairo on Sunday.

"We are working on finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria and ending the bloodshed," said Fahmy, adding that he hopes to attain the solution through the second Geneva Conference or any other possible way.

"Egypt supports the Syrian revolution and the aspirations of its people and condemns with no hesitation any blood shedding," Fahmy said after a meeting with Al-Jarba while they discussed recent developments in Syria and Egypt.

Commenting on the involvement of some Syrian citizens in recent protests by Muslim Brotherhood, Fahmy described those acts as individual acts that don't represent the Syrian People.

Fahmy said that it is too early for the new government in Egypt to suggest any new initiatives regarding the Syrian crisis, "but we are deeply thinking about the situations and we will offer what serves the interests of the Syrian people."

On Saturday Fahmy told reporters that Egypt has no intention for Jihad in Syria. He added that the decision by the ousted President Mohamed Morsi to sever ties with Syria will be reviewed.

Al-Jarba said that Egypt was never a supporter for the military solution in Syria and there should be a political solution in Syria.

Al-Jarba said that he was assured by the Egyptian FM that the new visa rules for Syrians imposed recently are only temporary measures that will end soon. Endi
