The White House says it’s planning to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organisation.
This could bring sanctions against the group, as well as companies and individuals who interact with it.
In a statement, the group says it will continue to work in line with its moderate and peaceful thinking.
Egypt’s President, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, reportedly urged his US counterpart, Donald Trump, to make the designation in a meeting last month.
