Egypt's interim presidency will soon call for a national reconciliation initiative to put an end to the ongoing conflict following former president Mohamed Morsi’s ouster, according to Ahmed El-Muslimani, media advisor to Interim President Adly Mansour.

In an interview on Al-Hayat TV, El-Muslimani revealed that Mansour has received many initiatives regarding national reconciliation from different parties and powers in Egypt.

"The presidency welcomes all sincere efforts in this regard," he said.

Defence minister Abd El-Fattah El-Sisi announced Morsi’s removal on national television following popular nationwide protests demanding Morsi’s resignation

Shortly after Morsi’s removal on 3 July, constitutional court head Adly Mansour was sworn in as interim president and a constitutional declaration containing a transitional ‘roadmap’ for early presidential elections was issued.

Hundreds of thousands of Morsi supporters have been protesting for his reinstatement ever since, with deadly clashes erupting intermittently.

Morsi's ouster came as part of the military roadmap for Egypt's future in the wake of mass protests across the nation against the former elected president.
