Over 500 people have been killed and 3,000 injured in clashes between the Egyptian security forces and Muslim Brotherhood supporters since on Wednesday.  Egypt has declared a state of emergency for a month and imposed a curfew in a number of turmoil-hit provinces including Cairo, Alexandria, North and South Sinai.

The two leaders called for an ‘immediate cessation of violence’ and urged the Egyptians to open dialogue. Both leaders also called for an urgent consultation at the European level. They want that EU Foreign Ministers to come together quickly, next week, in order to take a stock of cooperation between the European Union and Egypt, and to develop common responses.
