MOSCOW, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Egyptian political forces should give up the use of force, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Monday.
“The situation in Egypt remains extremely difficult. According to the latest reports, the opposition has held mass protest actions in Cairo, Alexandria, Suez and other cities to demand the early resignation of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi,” the ministry said.
“Simultaneously the president’s supporters also organised protest actions. The clashes and casualties among protesters have been reported. Mass media say more than 10 people died and several hundreds of people were injured,” the ministry reported.
“We urge all political forces of Egypt, public and political figures to show restraint and give up the use of force that can lead to further escalation of violence,” the ministry said.
“We are convinced that the problems in Egypt can be and should be solved exclusively within the legal framework on the basis of national unity and accord in order to carry out political, social and economic reforms,” the ministry said.
The Russian ministry insisted Russian citizens staying in Egypt avoid crowded places and those who leave for the country refrain from trips outside resort areas.
