Egypt: Qandil: Dialogue 'Key to Resolve All Political Differences'

Prime Minister Hisham Qandil asserted on Tuesday 29/1/2013 that a serious national dialogue is the "key to resolve all political differences in Egypt."

At a meeting with a number of media men of Egyptian Radio and Television Union, Qandil said that all political powers should put Egypt's best interest above any consideration.

A preconditioned dialogue is considered as empty of content, Qandil said, referring to the conditions set by the National Salvation Front to take part in a national dialogue under President Mohamed Morsi.

He praised security forces, who are working under difficult conditions for long periods, calling them to deal with the protesters in line with law.

Asked about imposing a curfew in Port Said, Suez and Ismailia, Qandil said that the move came to protect the citizens of the three coastal cities.
