HARDtalk - Amr Moussa - Secretary General of the Arab League (2001- 2011)
Sarah Montague asks Egypt's former foreign minister and former head of the Arab League, Amr Moussa if he trusts the military-backed government to bring democracy to the country.
The Egyptian authorities are drafting a new constitution that would ban religious-based political parties. It's prompted a furious reaction from those who support the deposed President, Mohamed Morsi. They say it will incite "chaos" within Egypt and opens the door to "the system which produced pharaohs". HARDtalk speaks to the country's former foreign minister and former head of the Arab League, Amr Moussa. He supports the new military-backed government, but does he trust it to bring true democracy to Egypt?
