Statement by Commissioner Štefan Füle on Egypt
"The political reality of Egypt changed spectacularly last Friday when President Mubarak stepped down after 30 years in office. His departure has opened the way to the possible transformation of Egypt. Let me repeat it in front of this House: the EU salutes the courage of the Egyptian people who have pursued their struggle for democratic change peacefully and with dignity." stated Commissioner Füle on 16 February 2010 at the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
