FCO press release
Today the Foreign Secretary expressed his concern about reports of violence in Cairo:
“I am concerned by reports of violent clashes following earlier peaceful protests in Cairo. I urge all sides to show restraint.
“The UK remains committed to supporting Egypt’s political transition and strengthening democracy. We are in close contact with both the Egyptian authorities and leaders of the opposition. We call on the Egyptian authorities to make progress on transition in an inclusive manner which allows for a constructive exchange of views. We urge all parties to resolve their differences through a process of dialogue which allows all voices to be heard.”
