London: Egypt`s military leaders have offered to include the Muslim Brotherhood in the country`s political process.

The Muslim Brotherhood leaders will get three ministerial posts in a unity government and frees some members from prison.

According to the Guardian, a security source close to the discussions confirmed the substance of the discussions.

However, the Egyptian military and the presidency later denied that talks had taken place, or that any offers had been made to the Brotherhood.

The security source said that under the national reconciliation there have been promises made by the government to the Brotherhood, but only after they end the protests following ouster of democratically elected president Mohammed Morsi.
He said that these promises include three ministerial posts in the new government; unfreezing the assets of the senior Muslim Brotherhood and only letting out of prison those who have not incited violence against the state, the report said.

Two senior Brotherhood officials also denied that a deal had been reached.
