Egypt will not allow armed turmoil in neighboring Libya to threaten its national security, presidential front-runner Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said in an interview with the pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat published Saturday.It cited weapons trafficking as a threat to Egyptian security mainly because the arms are ending up in Egypt's volatile Sinai Peninsula where an Islamist insurgency has taken wing.Sisi, who is expected to easily win a presidential election that starts in Egypt on Monday, told Asharq al-Awsat that Libyans wanted a state that could accommodate everyone but this was not possible in the presence of armed conflict. Speaking about threats to security in general, Sisi said Cairo could confront any terrorism in Egypt head-on.
