Egypt deemed a report issued by the US State Department on human rights in Egypt as unbalanced, subjective and fraught with errors.
During a press conference Saturday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Badr Abdel-Aati said the US issues the report annually to assess human rights conditions around the world.
The US has been arrogating to itself the role of the human rights defender without any legitimate ground, Abdel-Aati said.
Egypt would have accepted the report if it had been issued by the United Nations or any human rights organization but having the US issued it reflects the country's desire to take the role of a human rights defender and judge, Abdel-Aati added.
The report on Egypt is unbalanced because it talks about toppling a civil elected government contrary to the truth as millions of Egyptians took to the streets on June 30 to call for early presidential elections, Abdel-Aati noted.
