British Foreign Secretary William Hague called Thursday for an orderly transition in Egypt, and said the current situation there could pose a danger to the Middle East peace process.

“We have said from the start of this crisis in Egypt that there should be an orderly transition and that, in our view, has to include a broadly based government in Egypt and giving the Egyptian people real and visible and comprehensive evidence of change,” he told Reuters during a news conference in Manama, Bahrain.

Hague also called for negotiations on a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to be accelerated.
