CAIRO: Egypt's main opposition bloc has called for demonstrations nationwide on Friday to achieve the "goals of the revolution", after turning down an invitation by President Mohamed Mursi for talks.

A statement Monday called "on the Egyptian people to take to the streets in all Tahrir Squares (across the nation) on Friday to stress the sanctity of the blood of the martyrs and achieve the goals of the revolution."

Mursi invited leaders of the National Salvation Front opposition coalition to join him and other politicians in a national dialogue on Monday but the bloc rejected his call as "empty of content."
