MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the international community should encourage political forces in Egypt to reach a compromise and national reconciliation.
After talks with Ghana Foreign Minister Hannah Tetteh on Wednesday, Lavrov said the world community “should encourage Egypt to convince it to work out agreements, which would ensure equal rights for political, ethnic and religious groups of the population. There is no other way.”
“This is our stance when we egnange in contacts with representatives of different political forces in Egypt,” the minister stressed.
“We’re concerned over the situation in Egypt. It is necessary to give lessons to prevent the so-called Arab Spring spreading to other countries and stop different forces from clashing with each other,” Lavrov said.
“We should realize: if we’re guided by the inviolability of international law under which the people should decide on the fate of the country, the international community should comply with this principle,” the minister said.
