Egypt's army will not allow violence: military spokesman

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt’s military urged all political forces to solve their differences in dialogue and declared that it would prevent violence, a military spokesman said on Saturday.

“The armed forces affirm that dialogue is the best and only way to reach consensus...,” the spokesman said in a statement read on state television. “The opposite of that will bring us to a dark tunnel...which we will not allow.”
