Egypt: PM Calls for Abandoning Slogans, Achieving Revolution's Goals

Prime Minister Hisham Qandil underlined the need of abandoning slogans and starting work in order to achieve the January 25th Revolution's goals.

During his meeting on Monday 4/2/2013 with a number of media figures, in the presence of Information Minister Salah Abdel-Maksoud, Qandil voiced hope that the politicians would calm down and put the national interest above any other consideration.

There will be no return to suppression and human rights violations, Qandil stressed, adding that he totally respects the State of law.

He, meanwhile, said that authorities have opened probe at once over the recent violations.

He urged Egyptians to restore the spirit of January 25th Revolution by renouncing violence, adding that the political turmoil and instability would lead the country to a critical situation.

Qandil pointed out that Egypt's economy will regain its status, mainly due to Egypt's geographic location that attracts trade and investments from all over the world.

The recent agreements signed in Egypt will attract investments to the Egyptian market, he said.

He added that the government had called for an economic conference, to be held in March, during which a number of local and international experts will discuss Egypt's economic future.

He stressed that the country has to bring about political stability in order to start establishing a democratic State.
