Catherine Ashton holds two-hour discussion with former leader, his first known contact with outsiders since his removal.
Catherine Ashton, the European Union foreign policy chief, has met Egypt’s deposed president Mohamed Morsi, his first known contact with the outside world since he was toppled by the army earlier this month.
Ashton held two hours of “in depth” discussions with Morsi on Monday, her spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said on Twitter.
No further details were available about where the meeting took place, or what they discussed.
Morsi has been held incommunicado since the military removed him from power on July 3.
