Cairo – 2 July, 2013
In a statement today, CEOSS commended the peaceful demonstrations that started last Sunday, carrying Egyptian flags that looked like one big flag covering Egypt with a powerful voice crying “Long live Egypt”.
This was stated by Dr. Rev. Andrea Zaki, CEOSS General Director who greeted and thanked the great people of Egypt of different political or religious affiliations for their commitment to achieve people’s demands in order to maintain the objectives of January Revolution.
The statement added that in the context of CEOSS mission and work for Egyptians, it emphasizes the importance of maintaining the security of the nation and the cohesion of its people. It also stated that CEOSS supports the responsible role the armed forces and police played in the current situation, and appreciates all promise given by their leaders to prevent all the dangers that threaten the state and cause chaos.
Dr. Zaki concluded his statement saying: “As we always promised, we will still be at the service of the nation through our continuous interaction with citizens, especially the most marginalized and particularly in such critical circumstances”, stressing the need to renounce violence and not hurting individuals or property, whether public or private. He also called on the people to trigger all initiatives that call for co-existence, acceptance of others and political, cultural and religious pluralism.
