Abu Dhabi, Aug 15 (IANS/WAM) UAE's ministry of foreign affairs has expressed concern over the unrest in Egypt after an operation was launched Wednesday to disperse supporters of deposed president Mohamed Morsi in Cairo.
"The UAE ministry of foreign affairs is following with great concern the developments of the situation in Egypt... The ministry re-affirms its understanding of the sovereign measures taken by the Egyptian government after having exercised maximum self-control," an official statement said Wednesday.
"What is regretful is that political extremist groups have insisted on the rhetoric of violence, incitement, disruption of public interests and undermining of the Egyptian economy, which has led to the regretful events today (Wednesday)."
The United Arab Emirates urged Egyptians for starting the national reconciliation in order to achieve the "required political, civil and democratic transition".
