“It goes without saying, that we stand for the political processes in Egypt to develop in the legitimate political way, and for us the President of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, is legitimately elected president. We cooperated with him and hopefully will continue the cooperation. At the same time we understand the mood, which is expressed by a large part of the Egyptian society. Also we do understand this feeling of responsibility that the military of Egypt have for the fate of their country”, – Mikhail Margelov, Chair of the Committee for Foreign Affairs of the Council of Federation of the Federal Assembly and Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation on the cooperation with African countries.
