CAIRO - Egypt said on Wednesday it was committed to reconciliation and accused the Muslim Brotherhood, whose leaders are due to appear in court next week, of undermining efforts to resolve political turmoil.

"The government realizes from its side the importance of reconciliation," said Deputy Prime Minister Ziad Bahaa El-Din in a statement.

"Those who are until now rejecting or stalling any understandings aimed at achieving reconciliation and stability for the Egyptian people are the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood."

The army toppled the Brotherhood's President Mohamed Morsi in July. Security forces killed hundreds of its members and jailed thousands, including Mursi and many other senior leaders.
