Obama Sees Progress in Egypt

Washington, Feb 8 (DPA) Egypt is making progress in resolving its political crisis as talks between the government and opposition groups were underway, US President Barack Obama said Monday.

"Obviously Egypt has to negotiate a path and they're making progress," Obama told reporters after delivering a speech to the business community in Washington. He did not elaborate.

Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman met with representatives from one of the largest opposition groups, the Muslim Brotherhood, Sunday. And the newly-appointed cabinet met Monday night to discuss reforms.

The Muslim Brotherhood emerged from the discussion, saying the government made no concessions while acknowledging that talks were in their infancy.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Obama was referring to "beginnings of a process that is taking place" when he made the remarks.
