UK Foreign Secretary: Not Taking Sides in Egypt, "Turbulence" Could Last Decades

Situation "very bleak" says William Hague


The "turbulence" in Egypt could continue for years or even decades but Britain will not take sides, the UK foreign secretary said on Monday.

William Hague said the situation in Egypt was "very bleak" after a week of violent clashes between the country's military government and supporters of the deposed president, Mohamed Morsi.
