BRUSSELS — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says Egypt’s unrest shows the urgent need for dialogue between President Mohammed Morsi’s government and opposing voices on a constitutional path going forward.
Speaking at NATO, Clinton said the U.S. wants to see a constitution emerge that protects the rights of all Egyptians — men and women, and Christian and Muslim.
But asked to specifically address any shortcoming in the Islamist-supported draft constitution, Clinton didn’t name any.
Clinton said Wednesday the dialogue needed to be two-way — not the government imposing its view. She also called for Egypt’s courts to be allowed to function.
