President Obama will deliver his long-promised speech in a major Arab city during a trip to Egypt, the White House announced Friday.

Obama will deliver a speech on June 4th in Egypt, though the location and details haven't been finalized, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced during the daily briefing.

"The speech will be about America's relations with the Muslim world," Gibbs said.

"I think, obviously, it's a country that in many ways represents the heart of the Arab world," Gibbs explained. "And I think it will be a terrific opportunity for the president to address and discuss our relationship with the Muslim world."

Gibbs said the White House selected the country, but didn't directly answer a question in regards to whether or not the Obama administration considers Egypt a democratic nation.
