[Released to the media on February 12, 2011]
The Filipino people welcome the relatively peaceful resolution to Egypt’s political crisis. Egypt’s “People Power” transition shows that the aspirations for a more free and fair society are universal. As Filipinos did in 1986, Egyptians must now begin the work of rebuilding their institutions. We stand in solidarity with Egypt and all people who long for peaceful and meaningful change.
