Pakistan has described the ouster of Morsi as ‘a major setback for Egypt's return to democracy and to the achievements of aims and objectives of January 11 revolution,’ reported a news channel, citing the Pakistan Foreign Ministry in a statement.

It said that Pakistan, having suffered from repeated extra-constitutional interventions, was opposed to military interventions for resolution of disputes in any country. Islamabad also urged all sides in Egypt to address the legal and constitutional issues in an inclusive and peaceful manner to enable the country to successfully restore the democratic institutions as early as possible.

"It is the earnest hope of the government and the people of Pakistan that the great nation of Egypt would be able to deal with its affairs in a manner which ensures political stability, sustained democracy and development of their country and prosperity and well-being of its people," the Ministry said.
