EU pledges €90 million to Egypt despite continued human rights violations

Since the coup in July, the EU have been monitoring and watching events in Egypt extremely closely. One of the first foreign representatives to meet the military after Morsi was deposed was a high level EU delegation. Catherine Ashton was the first foreign diplomat to actually meet with Egyptian President Morsi in detention and following her meeting brought news directly from him to the outside world.The EU External Action Service did not call events that led to Morsi\’s removal a coup but did acknowledge that events were \”disturbing.\” Since the coup the EU has continued to monitor events closely in Egypt. Despite raising concerns about the military and security forces actions against the Egyptian people the EU has since gone on to acknowledge the Egyptian military interim government\’s political road map. The road map suggests that elections will be held and a new government in place by summer next year. Yet the EU have still failed to acknowledge that the events were a coup. Egypt and the EU\’s relationship does not seem to have suffered much in the context of Morsi\’s removal, despite Egypt having lost its place at the African Union\’s table and facing much criticism from a number of other international parties.
