British Foreign Secretary on protests in Egypt

William Hague

Jan 26 (KATAKAMI.COM / FCO.GOV.UK) — Foreign Secretary William Hague urges the Egyptian Government and demonstrators to seek a peaceful way forward.

“We deeply regret the loss of life in the Egyptian protests. All parties should show restraint and avoid violence. It is important that the government listens to the concerns of those demonstrating and respects rights of freedom of assembly and expression. Openness, transparency and political freedom are important tenets of stability. We urge the government and demonstrators to seek a peaceful way forward.

We have updated our travel advice for Egypt to reflect recent developments. This advises people to avoid political gatherings and demonstrations. We will be keeping the advice under constant review.”  (*)
