State Dept. Says US Officials Will Not Meet With Muslim Brotherhood Delegation


Muslim BrotherhoodThe State Department said Tuesday U.S. officials will not meet with Muslim Brotherhood representatives visiting Washington after Egypt reportedly summoned the U.S. ambassador in Cairo to express displeasure at the visit. Fox News reports.

State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke told a press briefing that the U.S. will remain in contact with groups “across the political spectrum” in Egypt, but there were no plans to meet with the delegation expected to come to a private conference this week in the U.S. capital.

Rathke offered no specific explanation as to why officials were not meeting with the delegation.
