US Deputy Secretary of State, William Burns, has met with interim leader of Egypt and the Prime Minister as well as the head of the armed forces.



According to the BBC Burns described the events of the last two weeks in Egypt as a second chance to realise the promise of the revolution.



He also said he did not visit Cario to give any solutions or lecture anyone, saying only Egyptians can determine their future.



Speaking at a news conference, Burns made clear the first priority must be to end violence and incitement and prevent retribution and begin a serious and substantive dialogue among all sides and all political parties.
