Suleiman specified that "the foreign Countries, the Muslim brothers movement and other Egyptian parties have their own specific agendas'' and that ''the young people now in Tahir square are needed to meet these agendas". The vice president also stated that ''the presidential elections will be held before September, probably in August".

The unrest in Egypt is the result of a 'conspiracy' set up by ''foreign Countries, the Muslim Brothers and some parties": the statement was made today by Egyptian vice president Omar Suleiman while being interviewed by the Egyptian national TV.

Suleiman specified that "the foreign Countries, the Muslim brothers movement and other Egyptian parties have their own specific agendas'' and that ''the young people now in Tahir square are needed to meet these agendas".

Addressing the country on national television, the vice president explicitly invited the Muslim Brothers to open talks with the government. Suleiman explained that he contacted the Muslim Brothers but that the movement is ''hesitant''. He stated that ''opening talks is in their interest'', and explained that he plans on meeting, between Friday and Saturday, with the opposition forces that today refused to meet him.

During the interview the vice president also stated that ''the presidential elections will be held before September, probably in August". Suleiman stated that "time is needed for reforms" and that the latter ''cannot be carried out from morning to night".

"The young people are demanding the disbandment of senate and parliament. But how can we disband them if the demonstrators are asking for constitutional amendments that only the chambers can provide?", is the question raised by the deputy head of State.

Suleiman stated, "What I instead proposed is to immediately open national talks with all political forces up to June, and in the meantime parliament and senate can carry out, in approximately 70 days, the reforms of the articles of the constitution that concern the presidential elections. Starting in July we will be able to start the electoral campaign for the presidential election by August". Suleiman added that "tow years are needed for a full review of our constitution and this can only be started after the election of the new head of State".

As for the request to depose Egyptian president Mohammad Hosni Mubarak, Suleiman defined it alien to the Egyptian people.  And he thanked the ''young demonstrators" in Tharir square, calling them ''the torchbearers of reform".
