Brotherhood leader 'ready to talk' when Mubarak goes

DUBAI (AFP) - Egypt's opposition Muslim Brotherhood is ready to hold talks on the transition from President Hosni Mubarak's rule once he has resigned, its supreme guide Mohammed Badie told Al-Jazeera television Friday.

"We stand with all the political forces supporting dialogue with whoever wants to implement reforms in the country after the departure of this unjust, corrupt tyrant," Badie told the Qatar-based satellite channel, referring to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

"We have a single demand. Once it is met we will engage in dialogue," he said in response to a question about the Muslim Brotherhood's willingness to enter dialogue with newly-appointed Vice President Omar Suleiman.

In a television address late on Thursday, Suleiman announced he was open to including the Muslim Brotherhood in talks he plans to hold with the opposition.

"We reached out to them. They were invited. They hesitated," Suleiman said of the Brotherhood, which is officially banned but tolerated in Egypt.
