CAIRO -- Egypt's embattled president says he will not step down and called on the military to withdraw its ultimatum that it will intervene if he does not work out differences with the opposition.

Writing Tuesday on his official Twitter account, President Mohammed Morsi says he rejects all "dictates," whether domestic or foreign.

The military has said that if no agreement is reached between Morsi and his opponents meeting their demands it will impose its own political road map to resolve the crisis. Its deadline runs out during the day Wednesday
