 CAIRO : Rumors of negotiations to release deposed president Mohamed Morsi if he tenders his resignation are unfounded, according to army spokesperson Colonel Ahmed Mohamed Ali.

 “With rumors flying around through social networks regarding secret talks between military leaders and Morsi’s office director Ahmed Abdel Atty to release Muslim Brotherhood figures, military forces assure that there are no such negotiations or meetings going on with any Muslim Brotherhood members,” stated Colonel Ali’s official Facebook page.

“The military forces assure their full commitment to the roadmap agreed on by political forces and the Egyptian people on July 3 following the ouster of Egypt’s first elected president Mohamed Morsi on June 30, and will never give up what June 30 accomplished,” the Facebook statement added.

Colonel Ali said publishing such rumors aims to threaten Egypt’s security and stability in addition to harming the reputation of the Military forces.  He urged Egyptians to avoid such continuous, systematic rumors and not to pay attention to them.
