Egyptian President: Obama’s Comments “Encourage Violent Armed Groups”

Al Ahram reported:

Egypt’s president on Friday suggested US President Barack Obama’s condemnation of a deadly crackdown on Islamists may “encourage violent armed groups”.

“The presidency fears statements not based on facts may encourage violent armed groups,” it said in a statement responding to Obama’s condemnation of Wednesday’s carnage when police moved to disperse Islamist protest camps.

“The presidency appreciates US concern for developments in Egypt, but it wished it could have clarified matters,” said the statement published by the official MENA news agency.

“Egypt is facing terrorist acts aimed at government institutions and vital installations,” the statement said.
