US President Barack Obama has agreed to meet with Muslim Brotherhood officials at the White House, the Egypt Independent reported Tuesday, quoting unnamed sources.

According to the report, Obama was prepared to meet representatives of the Islamist group in order to "hear their opinion."



Turkish diplomats were also set to attend the meeting, which was expected to take place sometime this month, the Egypt Independent reported.

The Turkish diplomats were expected to lobby for Morsy's reinstatement, or at minimum, a continued political role for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the report added.
