US: No decision yet on freezing aid to Egypt

The United States has not made a decision on whether to freeze economic assistance to Egypt in a review underway by the Obama administration of all US aid to the country, the State Department said on Monday.

 

"We have not made a policy decision to put a blanket hold on the economic support fund," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told a briefing, adding later that the review also applied to military and security assistance to Egypt. (Reuters)
