Egypt summoned the U.S. ambassador in Cairo to show displeasure at Muslim Brotherhood figures coming to Washington for a private conference.
Sources familiar with the matter said U.S. officials did not intend to meet the group, though some Brotherhood members came to Washington in January.
The tensions reflect a clash between U.S. diplomats' desire to deal with the whole political spectrum in Egypt and a fear of alienating Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
The sources declined to say precisely when U.S. Ambassador Stephen Beecroft was call in by the Egyptian government
Egypt sought the meeting to make clear its unhappiness at U.S. dealings with the Brotherhood.
State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke declined to comment on the reports.
He also clarified that he had no meetings to announce.
