WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States is discussing with Egyptians a “variety of different ways” of moving toward a peaceful transition in Egypt, the White House said on Thursday.

Tommy Vietor, spokesman for the White House National Security Council, said President Barack Obama has said now is the time to begin “a peaceful, orderly and meaningful transition, with credible, inclusive negotiations.”

“We have discussed with the Egyptians a variety of different ways to move that process forward, but all of those decisions must be made by the Egyptian people,” he said.
