On the other hand, European Union's (EU) High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton urged all sides in Egypt to rapidly return to the democratic process.

It is vital for them to respond to the strong desire of the Egyptian people for faster economic and political progress for their country."
