MOSCOW, February 2 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow considers as important the strict implementation of the agreement between pro-government forces and the opposition of Egypt to support the national dialogue, the Russian Foreign Ministry said after the country's leading political groups signed an agreement on non-violence.
"The Muslim Brotherhood and representatives of the opposition National Salvation Front, Islamic political groups and youth organizations on Thursday held a meeting at the world's largest Islamic University Al-Azhar. The main outcome of the negotiations following a week of mass demonstrations and riots in several major cities was a statement renouncing force for the sake of preventing further escalation of tensions in the country.
"Moscow welcomes the agreements achieved at the Al-Azhar University and consider it important to ensure their strict implementation," the Russian Foreign Ministry said. The content of the document "is in line with our belief in the need for a peaceful settlement of all aspects related to the continuation of the democratic process in Egypt, through a dialogue and the search for mutually acceptable solutions that take into account the interests of all Egyptians."
