"Dialogue should always be within a peaceful way and the framework of legitimacy as the case in civilized countries," he added.

El-Sherif's press conference came as a response to the protests that hit Egypt for three days.

Thousands of Egyptian protestors participate in an unprecedented anti-government demonstration against corruption, poverty and unemployment, calling an end of the ruling of President Hosni Mubarak.

The three-day protests have led to at least 1,000 protestors in custody, with hundreds freed by the general prosecutors.

Until now at least seven people have died in the nationwide protests including one policeman, and President Mubarak has not made any public comments on the ongoing events in Egypt.

On Thursday, protesters tried to block international and regional highways in North Sinai, a few kilometers away from the borders with Gaza.
