KUALA LUMPUR, July 28 (Xinhua) -- The Malaysian government on Sunday called on the authorities of Egypt to resolve the conflict in its country peacefully and urged all parties concerned to refrain from using violence.

According to a Foreign Ministry statement, Malaysia expressed deep concern over the situation in Egypt, which had taken many lives and injured thousands.

"Malaysia is of the view that the authorities in Egypt need to hold serious dialogue with all interested parties to find a unifying path and formulate an effective and sustainable solution to resolve the issue," the statement said.

Egypt has been thrown into turmoil after the overthrow of President Mohammed Morsi by the country's military on July 3. Reports said that prolonged demonstrations by both supporters and opponents of Morsi led to the killing of at least 120 Morsi supporters Saturday.

The government of Malaysia will continue to monitor the situation in Egypt to ensure the safety of Malaysians there, the statement added.
