Egypt's Islamist president to visit United States next year
Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi will visit the United States in 2013, a presidential spokesman said on Monday, in what would be the Islamist leader's first visit to Washington since he was elected in June.


The spokesman, Yasser Ali, said no precise date had been set for the visit. The United States gives Egypt about $1.3 billion a year in military aid to bolster the US-brokered peace treaty Cairo signed with Israel in 1979. (Reuters)
