 Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi held a meeting Monday with members of the National Security Council (NSC) at the headquarters of the Presidency in Heliopolis, Cairo.

The meeting was attended by the Prime Minister, the Speaker of the Shura Council (upper house of parliament), the Ministers of Defense and Military Production, Foreign Affairs, Health and Housing, Interior, Justice and Finance, the director of Egypt's General Intelligence apparatus, and the chairmen of the Shura Council's committees for Arab affairs, foreign affairs and national security.

The meeting was also attended by Morsi's advisors for foreign relations and international cooperation, to discuss the latest developments in domestic affairs. The NSC stressed that all state apparatus and institutions work within the framework of respect for and protection of the constitutional and legal legitimacy stemming from popular will, which established the first genuine democratic regime in Egypt after the glorious January 25 Revolution.

The NSC issued a statement stressing the need to maintain a peaceful expression of opinion as one of the most important achievements of the Egyptian Revolution and the most important of rights guaranteed by the Egyptian Constitution.

It further stressed the sanctity of Egyptian blood and rejection of violence in all its forms and manifestations; and urged all political actors to assume their responsibilities fully in condemning and preventing resort to violence, so Egyptians can maintain the civilized face of the Revolution.

The NSC also decided that all state apparatus will carry their duty in full to protect citizens and institutions, as well as public and private enterprises, and to secure demonstrations expected in the coming days; to urgently speed up the march of democratization with completion of elected institutions, stating that elections will be held for the first House of Representatives after the issuance of the 2012 Constitution in the next few months – immediately after the Supreme Constitutional Court approves the amended electoral law; and to again invite all political parties to prepare for this poll, which adds to the basic building blocks of the nascent Egyptian democracy.
