Foreign Policy has an interview with Mohamed Tawfik, Egypt’s ambassador to the US, who appears to have accepted his new bosses wholeheartedly.
Among other things, Tawkif says that the military takeover Wednesday was not a coup:
“It’s not a coup because the military did not take power. The military did not initiate it, it was a popular uprising. The military stepped in in order to avoid violence. At no point has the military come back to rule Egypt,” he says.
