CAIRO - Allies of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi told mediators on Saturday that they respected the demands of a mass protest that led to his downfall but that army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi must not be part of any political deal.

Tarek El-Malt, spokesman for the pro-Morsi delegation that met the envoys from the United States and the European Union, also said Morsi's allies were seeking a solution to Egypt's crisis based on a constitution suspended after he was deposed.
