Egypt seems to gain favour with Washington over ‘constructive role’ in regional security | Source: The Arab Weekly

A file picture shows Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, leaving the White House in Washington, April 9, 2019. 

US President Joe Biden’s administration called Egypt a “constructive” defence partner as it considers new military aid, downplaying previous reservations about Cairo’s human rights record. “The current view of the administration is that Egypt is playing a constructive role when it comes to border security, Libya, GERD, obviously the conflict in Gaza, et cetera,” as well to US military overflights and Suez Canal transit.
