The US State Department denied on Monday 8/7/2013 calling on the Egyptian army to release ousted President Mohamed Morsi or any Muslim Brotherhood members.
The US focuses on the coming phase in Egypt, Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in statements.
The spokeswoman called for forming a transitional government of all parties including the Muslim Brotherhood and then holding presidential elections.
Psaki added that the US administration urges the MB to become involved in the political process.
She asserted that Washington is convinced about continuing aid to the Egyptian army as this forms a priority in the US national security.
Amid such confusing and fast-moving events, the US has one powerful tool to try and influence the outcome, its relationship with the Egyptian military.
