EU’s FM Ashton on Mediation Mission to Egypt
Local Editor

The European Union's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton was scheduled to hold crisis talks in Cairo on Monday after bloody clashes in Egypt between supporters and protesters against ousted Egyptian President Mohammad Mursi.

Several thousand supporters of ousted President Mohamed Mursi's Muslim Brotherhood threatened to march on the military's intelligence headquarters against the Egyptian army.

Ashton was scheduled to meet General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the head of the Egyptian armed forces who led Mursi's ouster, the country's interim president, Adli Mansour, and officials of the Freedom and Justice Party, the Brotherhood's political wing.
Ashton, in a statement, said she would urge for a "fully inclusive transition process, taking in all political groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood."

The military says it does not want to retain power and aims to hand over to full civilian rule with a "road map" to parliamentary elections in about six months.
Speaking to Reuters on Sunday, interim Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said deepening divisions would lead to "more tragedies." 

He further blamed the Brotherhood for the violence, but said they should be part of the country's political future.

"If they decide to withdraw from politics, it will be disappointing. If they decide to pursue violence, then you are looking at a completely different confrontation," Fahmy said.
