>> secretarsecretary of state on kerrkerry is on a nine day tourf the middle east. his trip started with a quick stop th in egypt. during his six hour stay over kerry called for an end to the violence in egypt and for the country to move towards full democracy. >> the first stop u.s. secretary of state john kerry made on his latest trip to the middle east was to the to saudi arabia, but instead to cairo egypt. it's the first highest ranking official visit since july 3 n. that is the stay that the military removed mohammad morsi from his post as president of egypt and placed him under arrest. the us has been anxious about what has been happening in egypt everever since and it was john y
to deliver a message from washington on what they want cairo to do in the weeks and months ahead. >> what can they do to support working with this government and also supporting their move toward democracy. let's put it this way. this trip was unannounced and that was denying egypt to say the united states is in support of what we have been doing here politically in the past five months. so by havin having this unannoud trip the u.s. was able to send a message that it does disapprove of what has happened. that said, the u.s. also is making it gentleme very plain ae heard this from secretary of sea kerry on sunday. they looking to them as a security partner across the middle east. they have a long relationship and soldiers and generals train here in the u.s. and the u.s. looks to egypt to help maintain
security, particularly, between the border with israel and with whom egypt has a peace treaty and the u.s. also looks to egypt to try to make certain that insurdon'insurgentgroups don't d inside of the country of the egypt has an out sized amount of influence in regional politics and the u.s. sees in it's long-term interest it's best to be an ally of egypt rather than have some sort of political and dip lodiplomatic rupture. >> and kerry also packing a visit to saudi arabia. how significant is at that visit? >> when you consider up until the past three months or so, the relationship between riad and washington it was unquestionably a strong one. this is an important visit for kerry to make. the saudis have been concerned that the obama sa obama adminisn
has not done enough to bring the civil war in syria to an end. they have made their pleasure known. one by not taking one of the non-permanent seats on the u.n. security council and by deciding not to take part in the certainn diplomatic or military exercises with ou the u.s. this is a chance for the saudis to express their concerns to kerry and also about iran. iran is trying t to assume a greater roll in international politics. >> kerry has to listen to their concerns and try to placate them as best he can. >> pictures of mohammad morsi have come out for the first time since he was do pose deposed. morsi is to stand trial tomorrow
for charges of insighting murder and violence. egyptians moved the location of the trial today to avoid a mass rally. >> earlier i spoke to a middle east analyst who said kerry's influence in egypt may be limited. well the road map that was put in place by the transitional government does lead to a democratically elected new government that is expected to happen over the next several months. so as we move along the map, we are headed toward democracy at least electoral democracy. what actually happens in terms of who is doing the governance in the country and who is making policy decisions i think for now, we don't really know, how that will develop. >> how can you say the country is moving towards democracy when we have seen hundreds of protestors killed, and basic rights that a lot of americans take for granted and like
freedom of the press are not allowed in egypt. >> that has been a cause for a lot of concern, i think both in the u.s. and on the streets in egypt. egypt. the popular sentiment in egypt is pro military. they feel the muslim brotherhood hijacked the revolution and were exclusionary in their governance and supportive of violence. people are supportive of the military crack down and people are asking for more of a military crack down. >> in a way the military and interim government are caught between a rock and a hard place. even if they wanted to institute more open democracy they are being pressured to crack down harder and harder on demonstrators. >> ebeginegyptians maybe in favr offer all, but is is appropriate
for the united states to be outwardly supporting the military? >> i think the united states has very few options right now. >> they don't have much leverage with the ruling government. they don't have much leve levere with the military anymore now national that the u.s. military aid has been put on hold. >> and i think the relationship has suffered between the military leaders and military and political leaders in the united states. the u.s. has to interact with whichever government is in power in egypt and right now that is the military government. >> and staying in cairo, the arab league has been holding their emergency meeting on syria. the main opposition group has announced they will not attend the second round of peace talks in geneva unless certain conditions are met. >> they don't want iran which supports the syrian government at the geneva meeting. the new head of the syrian
national coalition said that there is no way that the syrian national coalition would attend the geneva two conference if iran was to attend. >> what we are clearly "from you is to support our regime region security and what remains of the international community conscious. first of all declare iran as an occupying force and demand -- >> he put other conditions as to whether h they would go or not. he said he expected iran's revolutionary guard to be pulled out of the conflict and the hezbolla m militia. and that makes the chances of them turning up to that conference very unlikely indeed. >> an update to breaking news we reported tonight. the terminal at birmingham

thinking about. that they were trying to signal some kind of displeasure of what has happened in the last seven months in eguesstimate egypt. but they are not trying to rearrange their alliance with eyegypt. >> who stands more to gain the united states or egypt? >> i think inener inertia is a e thing. and the united states sees a lot of value in the intelligence sharing and the tangible benefit of the susuez canal. they don't need the united states. you have kuwait andmenthe the ue pledging millions of dollars. i think it's clear from the
perspective you know what is more valuable. >> and you agree? >> i toldlto -- totally agree. the u.s. will give the whole package again and they will give money, but in exchange they will get more cooperation from the government of cairo with regard to sinai, the security of israel playing a bigger role in the middle east and with regard to the syrian conflict and they would have more cooperation from the egyptian and the u.s. needs that right now from the middle east with all of the tensions that are actually hindering their relationships with the other arab states. >> if you think of this trip as one that was meant to put out fires. ease tensions with allies, in some way egypt is the easiest fire to put out. has he done that with those statements? >> i'm not sure. the statements were very complimentary for egypt. tomorrow president morsi will go

but though will be i they will e background. the military will have it's own influence in the government one of the ironies is that morsi's opponents say he was elected democratically. he won the election, but he didn't govern in a democratic way. >> when they talk about moving back toward democracy, what they point to is this formal structure. we are righting a constitution and we are having a election and we are doing this. the things they point to as signs of a democratic revival. i think if we are talking about is the country moving back to democracy the key question is who will be able to contest those elections. will the muslim brotherhood be able to participate. and will it be a series of formal struc structures checkinf these boxes that only certain people will be allowed access
to. >> let's talk about john kerry's nine day 2004. nine -- tour. what is the biggest priority and where does he have the most work ahead of ha him? >> i think saudi arabia. >> which is where he is tonight. they are unhappy about several things. >> iran and syria. >> they are a very infle a infll country. and it's evident that saudi arabia will go public? it's been really something that needs a lot of attention. and i think he has a lot of work to do in riad. what does he need to do, liam? >> as you said there are a number of issues that u.s. and saudi have agreed on. one is egypt as well. >> the saudis are very upset of every turn of th political condn
