CAIRO: The U.S. and a number of European countries were forced to change their stance towards Egypt and support its government, after Egypt proved to be independent since June 30, Iman al-Mahdy, Tamarod spokesperson, said Friday.
Mahdy told Youm7 that Egypt’s “counter terrorism efforts” led many Arab countries to pursue the same path.
Mahdy added that it was natural for the international community to revise their stances toward the January 25 Revolution and June 30 events “in order to maintain international conventions against violence and terrorism, their national interests, and relations with the Arab region.”
The movement’s comments come in light of two Senate and House Armed Services Committee hearing sessions, conducted with Pentagon leaders on March 5 and 6, to discuss the situation in Egypt and military relations between Washington and Cairo. U.S. military leaders had said Egypt was fighting terrorism and stressed the importance of military relations between the two countries.
