White House: 2011 revolt still fresh for Egyptians
Washington: The White House says Egypt`s 2011 revolution is "still fresh" in the minds of the country`s people and that they have shown little desire to return to the regime of its former long time ruler.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest commented as a former leader, Hosni Mubarak, was released from prison on Thursday and taken to a military hospital in a Cairo suburb. Mubarak was toppled in the 2011 uprising that led to the democratic election of Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi.
Morsi was removed from office last month by a military coup.
Earnest declined direct comment on Mubarak`s status. He says those decisions are being handled by the Egyptian legal system.
Earnest also says there has been no change in the Obama administration`s continuing review of US aid to Egypt.
