US: Frank Wisner wasn't speaking on behalf of gov't
The US government disassociated itself from comments made by special envoy to Egypt Frank Wisner who claimed that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak should stay in office in order to hand over authorities in an orderly manner. A member of the US delegation to the security conference in Munich said that Wisner was speaking as a private citizen and not on behalf of the US government. (AFP)
