Egypt: Egypt Slams S. Africa’s Statements On Internal Situation

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry denounced a statement by South Africa, in which it falsified facts about the situation in Egypt and presented flawed visions about developments since June 30.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry condemned the false claims and accusations by South Africa about security forces using excessive force against the so-called “peaceful protesters.”

Not only are the claims a slander against the national pride of Egyptian institutions, but they are also a twist of facts that ignore the criminal acts committed by armed groups against citizens, churches, police stations, government institutions and private property in Egypt, it said.
