Egypt: Diplomatic efforts have failed

on August 07, 2013 10:00 AM

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s president said today that diplomatic efforts to peacefully resolve the standoff between the country’s military-backed interim leadership and the Muslim Brotherhood have failed.

The statement from interim President Adly Mansour’s office follows a flurry of diplomatic visits over the past two weeks by envoys from the United States, the EU and Arab Gulf states to defuse the crisis between the government and supporters of ousted Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi, who was a longtime Brotherhood member.

The statement did not say what the interim leadership’s next step would be, but in the past week authorities have outlined plans to break up two major sit-ins in Cairo by Morsi’s supporters.
