Germany says will ‘review relations’ with Egypt

BERLIN, Germany, Aug 16, 2013 (AFP)

Germany will review its relations with violence-torn Egypt, the office of Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a statement following her talk Friday with French President Francois Hollande.

“The chancellor explained that the government, in view of the latest developments, would review its relations with Egypt,” the chancellery statement said.

“She and the president broadly agreed that the EU should also thoroughly review its relations with Egypt.”

Both leaders shared “deep concern and dismay about the high number of fatalities and injuries” and would continue to closely coordinate their response to the crisis in the north African country.

“They agree that any further bloodshed must be avoided and urge all sides to refrain from any further violence,” said the statement.

Egypt has faced international condemnation since around 600 people were killed in clashes on Wednesday when police broke up protest camps of supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, in Egypt’s bloodiest day in decades.
