The Egyptian army has issued a 48-hour ultimatum for all parties concerned to find a solution to the political deadlock gripping the county before intervening.

“We give all parties 48 hours to respond to the people’s demands,” the army said in a statement read out on state television.

The military warned that if the parties concerned failed to achieve a breakthrough within 48 hours it will announce a roadmap and certain measures and it will supervise their implementation.

“If the people’s demands are not fulfilled in the set period, it will be an imperative for the Armed Forces to announce a future roadmap and measures to be implemented under its supervision with the participation of all national trends, including the youth who have been the trigger of the revolution, without marginalization,” General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the armed forces commander and defense minister, said.
