Egypt: Washington – Mubarak’s Fate Is an Internal Egyptian Matter, Morsy Should Be Released

US Secretary of State Spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki on Thursday 22/08/2013, said that the fate of former president Hosni Mubarak is an internal Egyptian matter, stressing that president Mohamed Morsy, who was ousted in past July, should be released.

“Well, as we have long said, with respect to the Mubarak trial and decisions made, this is an internal Egyptian legal matter” , Psaki said.

“Well, our position on Mr. Morsy remains the same. We believe there should be a process for his release. We’ve spoken frequently about our concerns about arbitrary arrests. And certainly, in order to have an inclusive process moving forward, an inclusive political process, we believe all parties need to have the opportunity to participate”, Psaki said.
