TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian legislator voiced concern about the deteriorating situation in Egypt, and said the root cause of the current crisis in the North African country is that the revolution in Egypt lacked independence.
“The situation in Egypt is becoming more complicated each day and the reason is that the country didn’t pass the transitional period well,” member of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh told the parliament’s news website on Monday.
He underlined that the root cause of the current crisis in Egypt lies in the lack of independence of its revolution, and said, “I believe that Egypt needs an Egyptian solution and not a non-Egyptian one.”
Falahatpisheh stressed that lack of independence in the Egyptian revolution created vacuums and fake backups, and added that foreign security and intelligence agencies misused these vacuums, and some foreign actors complicated the developments in the country under the name of defending certain Egyptian streams.
Egypt plunged into violence after the country’s army ousted President Mohammad Mursi, a senior leader of Ikhwan al-Muslimun party, suspended the constitution, and dissolved the parliament on July 3. The military overthrow followed days of mass protests against Mursi.
The army also declared chief justice of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court, Adly Mansour, as interim president.
Later in July, the Egyptian Prosecutor General ordered the arrest of Muslim Brotherhood leaders, including the supreme leader of the group, Mohammed Badie, on charges of inciting violence.
Many people have been killed in violent clashes involving supporters and opponents of Mursi and security forces in the last few weeks.
