U.S. Is Not Aligned With Any Egyptian Party: White House

President Barack Obama condemned the violence in Egypt on Saturday and said that the United States was not working with any particular Egyptian political party or group as the country reels from a military takeover.

Obama, spending the weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat, convened a secure conference call with members of his national security team as he seeks to help shape events in Egypt days after a military ouster of elected President Mohamed Mursi.

"The president condemned the ongoing violence across Egypt and expressed concern over the continued political polarization. He reiterated that the United States is not aligned with, and does not support, any particular Egyptian political party or group," a White House statement said.
