Senator Gillibrand Statement on Egypt: An Incredible Moment for Freedom and Liberty

As Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigns the presidency, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand issued the following statement:

Today, the world is witnessing an incredible moment for freedom and liberty as President Mubarak leaves office. Now Egypt’s leaders must emerge and take concerted steps that will result in a stable, orderly transition to a real democratic society that fosters prosperity for its people and peace with its neighbors. My hope is that the situation remains non-violent and stability returns to the country.”
