Salam also cabled Egypt's top military officer, Gen. Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi, to salute his effort to realize the "Egyptian people's aspirations," according to the news agency.
"We are following the situation in Egypt closely," said Toon van Wijk, spokesman for Dutch consular affairs. "But there's no reason for us to make reductions to our embassy staff in Cairo or to ask personnel to come home."
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he was "pleased on behalf of the Palestinian people" to congratulate Adly Mansour on his appointment, according to the Palestinian official news agency WAFA. Abbas "praised the role played by the Egyptian armed forces under the leadership of (Gen. Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi) in preserving the Egypt's security and preventing it from sliding to the unknown fate, appreciating the role played by the Egyptian people in all its colors and types and sides that stood to save Egypt and deciding a road map for its future in these critical moments," WAFA reported.

"I don't see this as a coup d'etat," said Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the PLO's executive committee, in an interview with CNN. "We see this as recognizing the will of the people there for the armed forces serving and protecting the people as they should."
"It is with concern that we received news of the suspension of Egypt's constitution and the removal of President Mohamed Morsy from power," said Marcin Bosacki, Poland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, in a statement.
"Such a solution must be treated as at least a temporary freeze of the democratic process initiated by the Egyptian nation over two years ago. What is most important today is that the current Egyptian authorities -- staying true to their promises -- undertake the fastest possible steps to return full power to democratically elected representatives of society."
Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani on Wednesday sent a cable of congratulations to Mansour, the state-run Qatar News Agency reported.
Qatar "will remain supportive of the Arab Republic of Egypt in its position as a leader and a pioneer in the Arab and Muslim world," the agency said, citing an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
It added, "The source praised the role played by the Egyptian armed forces in the defense of Egypt and its national security, stressing the need to strengthen national unity among all Egyptians and put their interests first -- in accordance with the principles of January 25 revolution."
"Switzerland expects to see a swift return to democracy in which all the social forces in the country are involved and in which fundamental human rights are respected," the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs said in a statement. "It expresses the hope that a peaceful solution can be found to the current political polarization in Egypt and it calls on all sides to renounce the use of violence."
President Bashar al-Assad described events in Egypt as the fall of "political Islam," the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency said, citing his interview with the state-run al-Thawra newspaper.
"You cannot deceive everyone all the time, particularly the Egyptian people who have a civilization dating back to thousands of years and clear pan-Arab nationalist thought," al-Assad said.
The Syrian president said he had long known that the Muslim Brotherhood's rule would fail. "I said their project is a failure before it began and this is what made the Muslim Brotherhood's experiment fall quickly because it is wrong, and what is built on a wrong principle will definitely fall," he told the newspaper.
"We are deeply sorry over recent events in Egypt," Ahmet Davutoglu, Turkey's minister of foreign affairs, told reporters in Istanbul, according to the official Anadolu News Agency. "It is extremely worrying that Morsy, a president who was elected democratically, was ousted by the army."
He added, "Powers of Egypt's elected authorities should immediately be reinstated."
In a statement, the Foreign Ministry said, "It is not possible for any democratic country to comprehend nor to accept that an elected president is removed from office through undemocratic means other than elections. We expect all due respect to be extended to elected President Morsy in this new period in Egypt as well."
