WASHINGTON — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Egypt ahead of the trial of deposed and imprisoned Mohammed Morsi. Morsi was deposed by the Egyptian military, imprisoned, and replaced by a secular interim government.
Reuters reported that Kerry will try to meet with Egyptian officials for a few hours to hammer out issues between the two countries.
Protests continue to break out as Islamist, Muslim Brotherhood-sympathetic mobs resist the secular interim government and their military backers. But, U.S.-Egypt relations have deteriorated as the Obama administration waffled on their stance during the Morsi presidency and during his overthrow.
