European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton will visit Egypt on Tuesday, on the third visit since the ouster of elected President Mohamed Morsi, a diplomatic source told Anadolu Agency.

Ashton will meet with a number of senior Egyptian officials, including interim President Adly Mansour, Defense Minister Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi, Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmi and head of a constitution-amending panel Amr Moussa, along with representatives of political powers.

The talks will focus on an army-imposed roadmap for Egypt's transition and the participation of all political powers, the source said.

The powerful military has imposed a roadmap for post-Morsi transition, under which the constitution was suspended and Mansour, the head of the constitutional court, was installed as interim president.
