Pakistan demands Egyptian Mori’s release

Friday, July 26th, 2013 2:37:47 by

Pakistan on Friday called for the release of deposed Egyptian President Muhammad Moris and restoration of democratic institutions in Egypt. 

“Having itself suffered from repeated extra-constitutional interventions, Pakistan is opposed to military interventions for resolution of disputes in any country,” the Foreign Ministry said. 

“We also call for the immediate release of President Muhammad Morsi,” a Foreign Ministry statement said. 

Pakistan urged all sides in Egypt to address the legal and constitutional issues in an inclusive and peaceful manner to enable the country to successfully restore the democratic institutions as early as possible. 

“It is the earnest hope of the Government and the people of Pakistan that the great nation of Egypt would be able to deal with its affairs in a manner that ensures political stability, sustained democracy and development of their country and prosperity and well-being of its people,” the statement said. 

The Foreign Ministry expressed deep anguish at the loss of innocent lives in the violence which has currently engulfed Egypt.

“This is a major setback for Egypt’s return to democracy and to the achievement of aims and objectives of January 2011 revolution,” the statement said. 

The ousted president and several of his Muslim Brotherhood leaders have been arrested since the Egyptian army overthrew Morsi in a military coup on July 3.

Morsi has been held at an undisclosed location by the army since then.

On Monday, Morsi’s family said they plan to take legal action against the head of Egypt’s army for having “kidnapped” the toppled president.
