Top U.S. Official Meets with Egypt Caretaker Leaders

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns met with Egypt’s interim leaders, President Adly Mansour and Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi, in Cairo on July 15. Reuters reported that local Islamists and their opponents allegedly snubbed Burns’ arrival — the first of a top U.S. official since former leader Mohamed Morsi’s ousting — and declined invitations to meet.
