Question Taken at Daily Briefing of Nov. 3, 2006

Meetings with Syrian Muslim Brotherhood (Taken Question)

Question:   What is the U.S. policy on contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria?

Answer:   We strongly advocate, in all countries, the right of all citizens to participate fully in political life and choose their leaders. We have met with several Syrian civil society organizations and representatives that promote much-needed peaceful democratic reform in their country. We have not met with members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
