Egyptian presidential media adviser Ahmed El-Muslimany has denied a report by Reuters that the government offered the Muslim Brotherhood ministerial posts, to release several of its jailed members and to unfreeze the group's assets as part of a deal to end the political crisis, state news agency MENA reported.

Reuters reported earlier on Monday - citing a military source - that the offer was made in exchange for the Brotherhood to end their sit-in protests.

The Muslim Brotherhood and its allies have been holding two large sit-ins in Cairo and Giza demanding former president Mohamed Morsi to be reinstated and have held daily rallies to voice their demands since 28 June.

On 3 July, the military deposed Morsi and put forth a political roadmap in cooperation with the opposition, which calls for constitutional amendments, parliamentary and presidential elections.

no legitimacy
Egypt present government has no legitimacy at all. They toppled a legitimate President at gun point. They came to power from back door not through any legitimate process that is recognized at any forum in modern world . They are feeling the heat now. That is why they are begging, threatening , killing, arresting and torturing all those who are against this illegitimate regime. They are in search of a safe exit for the crimes they committed against humanity.The time will come that the world community will take a decisive action against them if they take the wrong step.

Why?
Why on earth is the Egyptian government allowing foreign envoys to meet with Morsi and other Brotherhood representatives? Morsi is out of power. Shater is in jail. What possible justification is there for allowing these people to receive foreign envoys to negotiate? By allowing these visits the government gives legitimacy to the Brotherhood and Morsi, which they sorely lack. Bottom line is that the Brothers need to accept reality, negotiate with EGYPTIAN Authorities about EGYPTIAN matters, and stop inciting chaos and violence on the streets. Their supporters need to be cleared from the squares and they have been asked nicely and warned. Enough is enough!

MB will not disappear from Egypt
If MB practically could be eliminated from Egypt, Mubarak had done that long ago. This coup government need to talk to MB, either before civil war or after civil war. It is the only choice.
