European Parliament calls for promoting democratic transition in Egypt and observance of the peace treaty with Israel

At its regular plenary session in Strasbourg the European Parliament adopted a resolution urging the EU to rethink and improve its political and financial strategy to support the democratic transition in Egypt, including the organization of free elections. The resolution also calls to freeze assets of Egyptian leaders, responsible for the misappropriation of public funds in Egypt. According to MEPs the withdrawal from power of President Mubarak has started a "new phase of political transition in Egypt" and now the army should play a constructive role to avoid further violence, to facilitate the political process and the organization of free elections, while respecting the peace treaty with Israel.
