The Egyptian army will not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, the state news agency quoted a military source as saying, a day after President Mohamed Mursi’s anti-Syria remarks on supporting the idea of a no-fly zone over the war-torn country.

"The Egyptian army is to protect Egypt and its national security only ... The Egyptian army will not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and will not be lured or used in any regional conflicts," the military source said.

The remarks came one day after Mursi cut all diplomatic ties with Damascus, backed the controversial issue of no-fly zone over Syria and said, his country as well as the army supports the opposition in Syria which has been conducting a bloody war against people and government in Syria for more than two years.

The United States has recently announced that it will impose a no-fly zone over Syria and the Pentagon is drawing up plans for the action.

Recent moves to help the anti-Syria armed groups come as in the past months Syrian army has finally gathered its strength to fight against the massive terrorist war, to protect people and free some of its border areas from terrorists occupation.

The sad scene of daily killing is going on in Syria with the country’s army trying hard to save the country and the government announcing readiness for engaging in international talks, with no pre-conditions to end the crisis.

According to BBC, a spokesperson for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he remained against "any further militarization" of the conflict in Syria, saying the people there need peace not more weapons.
