CAIRO (AP) _ A senior U.S. diplomat has held talks with Egypt's interim president and prime minister-designate in the highest level visit by an American official since the Egyptian military ousted the country's first democratically elected leader.
U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns Burns' meetings Monday in Cairo come nearly two weeks after Islamist President Mohammed Morsi was overthrown by the army following days of mass protests.
Washington has been sharply criticized by both Morsi's supporters and opponents for what each side perceives as support for their rival's position.
The State Department said Burns would stress in his two-day visit American support for Egypt's people and an inclusive democratic process in which all political groups can participate.
A Muslim Brotherhood official said the group is not currently scheduled to meet with Burns. They have called for massive protests to demand the reinstatement of Morsi to power.
Some Muslim Brotherhood leaders have also called for Egypt's military chief General Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to be removed, and put on trial accused of treason.
