Deputy Secretary Bill Burns is visiting Cairo, Egypt, beginning August 2. Secretary Kerry asked Deputy Secretary Burns to visit Egypt again to discuss with Egyptian leaders the importance of avoiding violence and helping to facilitate a peaceful and inclusive political process. The United States looks forward to seeing a peaceful transition to a democratically-elected civilian government that protects the rights of all Egyptians. Deputy Secretary Burns will be joining officials from the EU and others in the region, who share our goal for a successful transition in Egypt.
