Abbas defends barrier wall

Hmmm. Aside from the usual ridiculousness, how about this quote:
"The Palestinian leader also justified Egypt's construction of a steel
wall that along its border with the Gaza Strip. Cairo has the "full
right to protect its territory and prevent smuggling of illegal
materials into Gaza," he said. "It is a sovereign and political
decision of the Egyptian government and we understand that," Abbas
added, reminding attendants of "the reasons for the Gaza siege.  It
is, in fact, the coup that Hamas staged that created all the problems
for Gaza's residents," he said.

Does this logic only apply to the Egyptian border?
