The United States has remained cautious to name the ouster of Mohamed Morsi as a coup d'état, while condemning the arrests and shooting of Muslim brotherhood protesters who support the overthrown leader.
Calling the arrests of senior Brotherhood figures as "arbitrary" the White House has echoed the voice of the United Nations while condemning the intensifying violence in Egypt.
"You're working against yourself if your effort is to be inclusive," White House spokesman Jay Caney said. "The only way this is going to work successfully...is if all parties are encouraged and allowed to participate and that's why we've made clear that arbitrary arrests are not anything that we can support."
Meanwhile, United Nations Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon has spoken to the Egyptian Foreign Affairs minister expressing concern over the violence, the United Nations has said.
"He reminded the Foreign Minister of Egypt's international obligations and the need to fully respect the right to freedom of association, speech and due process," a United Nations press briefing read.
With the start of Ramadan, intensified rallies from the rivals are expected on Friday while new authorities have not specified where the ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi is being held. The foreign ministry spokesman has only said that he is in a "safe place" and is being treated in a "very dignified manner".
Egypt has seen deaths of numerous civilians in the wake of the leader's ouster. Fifty Morsi supports were killed in army shootout on Monday alone while dozens have died in deadly clashes. Even as there are conflicting accounts of the day's incidents with many Muslim brotherhood members saying the army started shooting at people arbitrarily, the Brotherhood's spiritual leader, Mohammed Badie, and nine other senior members were accused of inciting Monday's violence.
There is general consensus among media critics that the ousting of the first democratically elected leader of Egypt should have been seen as a violation of international law. The US having refused to call the incident as coup d'état appears to be quietly acquiescing with the overthrow of the government that was found to be increasingly passing Islamic laws and reforms in the country.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said the Obama administration did not believe there was a need to immediately suspend aid to Egypt, while Washington has not openly confirmed the comments of an unnamed US official who said that delivery of four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt has been given a green signal.
The US, by law, is required to suspend the $1.5-billion military aid to Egypt if the removal of Morsi from the government is officially defined as a coup.
