Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr said they conveyed to Iran that their stance on Syria did not help the solution of the Syrian crisis.
"In a quartette meeting on Syria, we have warned Iran not to provide arms and weapons to Syria," Amr indicated.
Speaking at a press conference on the quartette meeting that was also attended by Iran in Cairo, Amr stressed that "military cooperation between Iran and Syria went back 30 years".
"Iranian arms sent to Syria cause more bloodshed in the region," Amr noted.
"We shared our views on Syria with Iran in clear terms," Amr stated.
Touching on news reports in the Iranian media that Egypt took a step backward from demanding that Assad leave power, Minister Amr said that they did not want to comment on this issue.
"We believe confidentiality is crucial so that the meetings and talks are successful," Amr said.
"We can not remain silent to what is happening in Syria from the viewpoint of our consciences. I believe that the meetings and efforts made will help end the bloodshed in Syria," Amr also said.
