Canada’s foreign affairs minister John Baird has today issued a statement about the situation in Egypt urging all parties involved in
the current impasse to remain calm, statement:

Baird said,”Canada urges all parties in Egypt to remain calm, avoid violence and engage in meaningful political dialogue. This is
important not only for Egypt, but, given Egypt’s influence, for the whole region as well.

“Canada firmly believes that implementing a transparent democratic system that respects the voices of its citizens, and that encourages and respects the contributions of civil society and all other segments of the population, including religious minorities, is the best way to restore calm and give all Egyptians a stake in the future stability and prosperity of Egypt.

“On behalf of all Canadians, I extend my heartfelt condolences to the families of those killed in the political violence of the past several
days and wish a speedy recovery for those injured.

“All Egyptians have the right to live in a free, democratic and secure society.”

Recently the military in Egypt took over power following massive demonstrations by citizens who were demanding that the president and his government should resign.
