Opposition leaders in Cairo announced Wednesday that they would be willing to negotiate with Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman on a peaceful power transition only if Mubarak tendered an immediate resignation, Israel Radio reported.

The Muslim Brotherhood, however, declared that they would not converse with Suleiman or any other member of Mubarak's government.

Another protest organization in Cairo stated that the opposition have stuck with their plans, and intend to remain in the streets despite the army's call for dispersal. Meanwhile, around 20,000 pro-Mubarak demonstrators have begun marching towards Tahrir Square, and there is a fear of the potential violence that may break out when the two sides meet.
