Egypt Islamists ready to talk with Washington

The Daily Star - Politics - Egypt Islamists ready to talk with Washington: "Liz Cheney, the vice president's daughter and the overseer of the Middle East Partnership Initiative, has also been reluctant to talk to the Brotherhood, which she argues cannot be considered as a democratic force.
A U.S. diplomatic source in Cairo admitted that official contacts with the Brotherhood had been ruled out until now, while European embassies have maintained a channel of contacts.
'We have meetings with them but in the professional unions they control, never at the headquarters of their movement, which remains banned under Egyptian law,' a European diplomat said on condition of anonymity. "
