Statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesman

Paris, July 27, 2013

France is deeply concerned about the very heavy toll of the clashes in Egypt. She calls on all those involved, and notably the army, to show the greatest restraint. Everything must be done to avoid an escalation of violence. We ask all those involved to be calm and seek a compromise so that a political solution may emerge peacefully and elections may be organized as quickly as possible, in line with the commitments made by Egypt’s transitional authorities./.
