A spokesman for Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said the United States has failed to
stand up for its principles concerning the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi.
Gehad el-Haddad said the coup against Egypt's first democratically elected president was given the "legitimacy of recognition and continued military aid" by the United States, Ahram Online reported.
El-Haddad said the same thing happened when former President Hosni Mubarak was ousted in 2011.
"Either the U.S. is complicit in planning/executing the military coup or ha[s] come to welcome it," he said.
El-Haddad tweeted his comments after U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns met with the man the Brotherhood accuses of leading the July 3 coup against Morsi, Army Chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.
The Brotherhood and Morsi supporters are demanding that Morsi be reinstated and the constitution restored before they engage in talks.
