Posted by African Press International on June 6, 2014

OTTAWA, Canada, June 4, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird today issued the following statement on the release of the official results of Egypt’s presidential election, which confirmed Abdel Fattah el-Sisi as president-elect:

“We congratulate President-elect el-Sisi on the results of the election. As we all know, difficult challenges face the president-elect in leading Egypt toward a more democratic, inclusive, secure and prosperous future, but such a future is in the interests of all Egyptian citizens. We continue to stand with Egypt in its efforts to confront terrorism, including in the Sinai Peninsula, where Egyptian security personnel are confronting a dangerous insurgency.

“Canada remains committed to supporting Egypt in making a peaceful and meaningful transition to democracy, based on respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law.

“This transition represents an important opportunity for Egypt, one that can provide the Egyptian people with the stability and prosperity they desire.”
