Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) VP Dr. Rafiq Habib opposed a recent vote by The US House of Representatives to establish a US envoy to protect the rights of religious minorities in the Middle East amid rising concern over Egypt.

According to Habib, the envoy which will be tasked with pressing minority rights in a broad region covering the Arab world and prioritizing Egypt, is nothing more than the continued policy of US interference in the affairs of other countries in the region.

He added that the US Lawmakers concern for the safety of Egypt's Copts and other minorities during the transition following the overthrow of Mubarak is uncalled for and that the Egyptian people are capable of handling their affairs  without external interference.

Habib asserted that following the Arab spring, in particular the Egyptian Revolution,  the people will no longer accept meddling in their affairs and will not accept other entities to dictate for them how to decide for their future.
