RABAT, August 18 (Itar-Tass) - Chairperson of the African Union Commission Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma called on all the parties in the Egyptian conflict to show maximum restraint and start a dialogue. Egypt has become a scene of fierce clashes between the army and supporters of the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood party.
Dr. Dlamini-Zuma said that time was ripe for the African Union Peace and Security Council to hold a meeting because the pan-African organization bore great responsibility for settling conflicts and unstable situations on the continent.
Last Thursday, the African Union resolutely condemned violence that led to numerous civilian deaths in Egypt. It expressed confidence that with the help of the African continent the Egyptian people would be able to find a solution to the existing problems by drawing strength from its history.
At the same time, the African Union warned that the absence of quick and considerable progress in the Egyptian settlement would have negative consequences for the entire region.
The pan-African organisation also stressed the need to restore constitutional order and hold free, fair and transparent elections.
