Foreign Office on latest developments in Egypt

Spokesperson says Foreign Office will study President Mubarak's proposals to the Egyptian people.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

In response to Egypt’s President Mubarak’s TV address, an FCO spokesperson said:

“We have been clear in public, and with President Mubarak and his Government in private, about the need for a transition to a broader-based Government that will produce real, visible and comprehensive change.

President Mubarak has made some proposals to the Egyptian people. We will study the detail of these. But ultimately the real test will be whether the aspirations of the Egyptian people are met.”
