Egypt rejects foreign meddling in affairs: ministry

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday it rejected the U.S. and European calls for the process of political transition in Egypt to start now.

The ministry statement, carried by the official news agency MENA, said calls from “foreign parties” talking about a transition now were “rejected and aimed to incite the internal situation in Egypt.”

A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the ministry rejected the call that had been made from U.S. and several European capitals.
