Pompeo in Egypt amid concerns over US Mideast policy

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was holding talks with Egyptian leaders in Cairo on Thursday as he continued a nine-nation Mideast tour aimed at reassuring America's Arab partners that the Trump administration is not walking away from the region.

 

Amid confusion and concern over plans to withdraw US forces from Syria, Pompeo was meeting Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry to discuss security and economic cooperation. He was also to deliver a speech on US-Egypt relations and the administration's broader Mideast objectives.
