US 'very concerned' about Egypt

04 July 2013, 07:32

Washington - The United States said on Wednesday it was "very concerned" about developments in Egypt's political crisis, and urged President Mohammed Morsi to "do more" to address the concerns of protesters.

"We do remain very concerned about what we are seeing on the ground in Egypt," state department spokesperson Jen Psaki said. "We feel there was an absence of significant steps laid out by President Morsi."

Washington believes he "should do more" to address the concerns of the Egyptian people, she told reporters, noting: "Actions speaker louder than words."

Psaki said Morsi's proposal for a unity government was one that had been "made in the past," and which "others in Egypt felt was not sufficient enough".

She, however, was careful to note that it was not up to Washington to judge.

When asked if Washington would consider cutting military aid to Cairo, the spokesperson said: "It would be premature to suggest that we have taken steps or are thinking about taking steps."
