In remarks on the sidelines of Cairo's Euromoney conference, Hegazy said: “Everyone working on the roadmap is serious about finishing it properly.”
Regarding the role of political Islam in Egypt's future, Hegazy said: “I believe the term of political Islam is inaccurate. The correct understanding of Islam will directly affect relations between Islam and politics in a way that will not get us back to extremist practices in applying the wrong interpretation of Islam.”
Asked about Egypt's current international relations prospects, Hegazy added: “I think current political trends may lead to more balanced forces in the region. We look forward to equal partnerships with other countries.”
