S&D GROUP URGES RESPECT FOR EGYPTIANS’ RIGHT TO EXPRESS ASPIRATIONS PEACEFULLY

31 janvier 2011

The S&D Group has followed with concern events in Egypt which have already resulted in deaths and a large number of people injured and arrested.

Said S&D leader Martin Schulz today: « I deplore the deaths and extend my sympathies to the families of the deceased. The right of Egyptian citizens to assemble and express their aspirations by peaceful means must be fully respected.

« These demonstrations reflect the legitimate wish of the Egyptian people to accelerate political, economic and social reforms in their country. They also prove that there is strong popular support for implementing these reforms in a democratic way, which we have always encouraged and will continue to support.

« The Egyptian government should follow this path. The use of force cannot be a response to such voices. »
