“Some Arab newspapers reported about Egyptian military presence in Syria,” the statement published on the Foreign Ministry’s Facebook page read, Sputnik reported.
“Egypt is committed to the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries.”
The spokesman stressed there are existing constitutional procedures on foreign deployment that Egypt had to follow.
“And those actions cannot be taken secretly without informing the Egyptian people about their objectives,” he added.
Egyptian military has been accused of sending troops to the aid of the embattled Syrian government.
Some certain Persian Gulf states support militant groups in Syria. A Russian government spokesman said earlier this month he could not confirm reports that Egyptian soldiers were present in Syria.
