WASHINGTON President Barack Obama is reiterating that the U.S. is not aligned with and is not supporting any particular Egyptian political party or group and again condemns the ongoing violence across Egypt.

The White House says that Obama made those points during a telephone conference Saturday with the National Security Council about developments in Egypt. He is spending the weekend at the Maryland presidential retreat, Camp David.

The White House says in a statement that the U.S. categorically rejects what it calls "the false claims propagated by some in Egypt that the U.S. is working with specific political parties or movements to dictate how Egypt's transition should proceed."
