Gamal Mubarak Visits the White House.
The son of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who some speculate may be in line for the presidency if his father steps down, visited the White House last week for a meeting at which he was briefly greeted by President George W. Bush, a spokesman said on Monday.
"Gamal Mubarak was in Washington briefly on private business and asked to see the national security adviser, Steve Hadley," Frederick Jones, spokesman for the White House National Security Council, said.
"Mr. Hadley met with Mr. Mubarak on Friday. The president dropped by to greet Mr. Mubarak and convey his best regards to his father, President Hosni Mubarak," Jones said.
He would not provide any details about what was discussed at the meeting.
