Restraint called for in Egypt

A bloody crackdown cannot solve the fundamental conflict in Egypt, and both sides need to show restraint to end the intense situation, Chinese and African experts said on Wednesday.

Yang Fuchang, who was Chinese vice-foreign minister from 1990 to 1994 and Chinese ambassador to Egypt from 1994 to 1998, said the Egyptian government needs a much more stable and peaceful social environment to further the country's development.

"The government, supported by the army, hopes to end the confrontation by cracking down on protesters. But even if its forces dispersed all the protestors in Cairo, the conflict would not be eased," he said.
