Morsi Due to Visit Parliament Next Week

MPs have rather optimistically been sent invitations “to an audience with Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi” in Parliament next Thursday by the British Group Inter-Parliamentary Union, at the request of the Foreign Office.

“The Egyptian President Morsi is planning to visit Parliament on Thursday 11 July as part of a programme of calls in the UK.  He has specifically expressed interest in meeting UK parliamentarians and BGIPU has been asked by the FCO to facilitate this event.  On current planning, the FCO has indicated President Morsi is willing to deliver a brief address and participate in a question and answer session with UK parliamentarians.  Key topics to be discussed are expected to include Egyptian parliamentary and constitutional reform issues, the impact of recent public protests and international responses to the situation in Syria. The venue for this audience will be Committee Room 3 from 2.15pm.”

There’s a chance his plans might have changed…

UPDATE: This has just been sent to MPs:

Dear all,
 
You will not be surprised to hear that in the light of recent developments in Egypt, the planned event involving Mohammed Morsi next week will not be proceeding. Thank you to all who indicated interest in attending. 
 
Best wishes,
 
BGIPU
