LONDON, August 19. (Itar-Tass) – Great Britain has frozen all joint ventures with Egyptian security services, said William Hague, United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary of State.
On BBC radio 4 he declared: “What we've done in Britain so far is that we have suspended projects with the Egyptian security forces. We have revoked a number of export licences, and I think then among the European countries we should review together how we try to aid Egypt, what aid and assistance we give to Egypt in the future.” "We have to respond seriously to this without excluding future assistance, nor removing all influence of the situation - foreign policy is often about striking the right balance,” he emphasized.
Britain’s Foreign Minister believes that the current Middle Easter and North African situation can “span decades,” as it is the largest geopolitical crisis of this century, saying it was "the most important event so far of the 21st century, even compared to the financial crisis we have been through and its impact on world affairs".
"I think it will take years, maybe decades, to play out, and through that we have to keep our nerve in clearly supporting democracy, democratic institutions, promoting dialogue and there will be many setbacks in doing that and we should be surprised when they take place," the official said on the air.
