Obama to Meet with Muslim Brotherhood Officials at the White House
Anonymous sources report that Barack Obama will meet Muslim Brotherhood officials at the White House.
The Egypt Independent reported;
US President Obama has agreed to meet with Muslim Brotherhood representatives at the White House, sources told Egypt Independent.
Obama would reportedly meet with Brotherhood officials to “hear their opinion” on developments in Egypt, in the presence of Turkish diplomats.
Egypt Independent heard from sources inside the Muslim Brotherhood that Islamist-linked billionaire Hassen Malek requested a meeting through Obama’s office manager.
The meeting with Turkish officials is expected to take place this month.
Turkish diplomats are expected to push for Mohamed Morsy’s reinstatement as Egyptian president, sources said, if not that the Muslim Brotherhood would be assured of political survival following a month-long violent stand-off with the armed forces in the wake of Morsy’s overthrow.
Over 300 people have been reported killed since army chief and Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi announced Morsy’s ouster on 3 July.
Monday Obama’s Deputy Secretary of State William Burns was to meet with the Muslim Brotherhood’s second in command Khairat el-Shatar in prison.
