US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday stated that the Egyptian military had deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi by the request of millions of citizen as a measure to defend and restore democracy, AFP reported.

"The military was asked to intervene by millions and millions of people, all of whom were afraid of a descendance into chaos, into violence," AFP quoted Kerry as saying during an interview in Pakistan.

“And the military did not take over, to the best of our judgement — so far. To run the country, there’s a civilian government. In effect, they were restoring democracy,” he said in response to questions on why the United State's has declined to determine whether a coup took place in Egypt on July 3.
