Egyptians have welcomed US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by throwing tomatoes and holding protests as they view her visit an example of Washington’s meddling in the country’s internal affairs.
Washington threw its weight behind the Hosni Mubarak regime for over three decades but now claims to support Egypt’s transition to democracy.
Clinton has met with Egypt’s newly-elected President Mohamed Morsi at the presidential palace. She met with Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi, the head of the military, and urged him to support a transition to civilian rule on Sunday.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Lawrence Freeman, Executive Intelligence Review, from Washington, to further discuss the issue.
