CAIRO - Egypt's President Mohamed Morsy will visit the United States on Sept. 23, making his first trip there since taking power in June, the presidential spokesman said on Wednesday.

The United States was a close ally of Egypt under ousted President Hosni Mubarak and gives $1.3 billion in military aid a year to Egypt plus other assistance.

Long wary of Islamists, Washington opened formal talks with Morsy's Muslim Brotherhood in 2011 as the group emerged as a major player in the political scene of the first Arab state to sign a peace treaty with Israel. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met Morsy in Egypt during a visit in July.

"President Morsy will visit the United States on Sept. 23 after his visit to China," presidential spokesman Yasser Ali told Reuters, referring to a visit to Beijing next week.
