Pope Tawadros: Egypt awaits real Arab spring

Egyptian Coptic leader Pope Tawadros II said Egypt awaits the real Arab Spring, to bring prosperity, growth and happiness. Egyptian Coptic leader Pope Tawadros II said Egypt awaits the real Arab Spring, to bring prosperity, growth and happiness. 

In an interview with state-run TV on Tuesday, the pope said that the 25 January revolution was produced by the youth but ultimately hijacked.
 
The Arab Spring did not bring anything positive, Tawadros added.
 
The January revolution was on track to correcting the path he said, however it deviated and was then corrected on 30 June. He also said that people still await the real spring that will come by means of Egyptians' insistence to work.
 
Egyptians are working on rebuilding the country, he said adding that Egypt has suffered many complications and is currently being restored.
