Cairo - The spokesperson for Egypt's largest opposition
grouping is dismissing a call by President Mohammed Morsi for national
Morsi, who hails from the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood group,
made the call during a fiery speech on Monday over plans by Ethiopia to build a
dam on the Nile river.
He said "all options are open" in dealing with the
project that Egyptians fear will leave the country with a dangerous water
shortage, and that he is "ready to go to anyone" to unite Egyptians
with a common stand.
The opposition sees this as an attempt to whip up
nationalist fervour to undercut countrywide protests planned for June 30 to
call for Morsi's ouster.
Spokesperson of the National Salvation Front Khaled Dawoud
said on Tuesday it was "rather too late" for talks.
