CAIRO, July 1 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's main opposition bloc, the National Salvation Front (NFS), hailed a recent military statement that gave all parties 48 hours to respond to demands of the people, the Front said on Monday evening.

The Front, in a statement, urged all anti-president protesters to continue their peaceful sit-in in all squares, expressing their "complete confidence in the Armed Forces."

Earlier, Defense Minister Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi said in an audio speech aired on state TV that the 48-hour deadline represents "the last chance" for all the parties to meet the demands of the people and resolve the crisis.

"The Armed Forces will not be part of politics or rule," he stressed.

The Interior Ministry then voiced full support to the Armed Force.

In a statement on Monday, the Egyptian police also said it won' t let the people down, asserting it is fully obligated of its tasks to protect citizens and vital institutions in the country.
