US accustomed to protests - Clinton tells Egyptian demonstrators
(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Responding to anti-US demonstrations during her visit to Egypt, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said there were protests in the United States and her country was accustomed to that.
What matters is that the United States works with Egypt and continues supporting the democratic transition in Egypt, she told reporters here Saturday night after her meeting with Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammad Kamel Amr.
She was commenting on the protests against the purported US interference in Egypt's domestic affairs.
Clinton said she held very good talks with Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi before the talks with Minister Amr which were very good too.
She added that she came with a simple message that the United States will stand by the Egyptians and their hopes for a democratic future, voicing joy for visiting the country.
The talks focused on the US-Egyptian partnership during the democratic transition in Egypt and the outlook of the economic and commercial cooperation as well as regional issues of common concern.
