Egypt slammed on Thursday statements made by by Ethiopia’s foreign ministry spokesman Tuesday on Cairo’s internal affairs, describing them as a “flagrant transgression.”
In an official statement, Egypt’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ahmed Hafez said the statements made by the Ethiopian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Dina Mufti on Egypt were “totally unacceptable.”
“The statements represent a blunt violation of commitments scribed in the constitutional foundations of the African Union, which stipulate clearly in its fourth article a commitment by member countries on non-interference in other countries’ internal affairs,” Hafez said.
“This is considered a violation of established African values which promote fraternity and respect for the other,” Hafez added.
