U.S. to review aid policy with Egypt: White House
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will review its aid policy toward Egypt based on events that take place there in coming days, the White House said on Friday.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs made the comment at his daily news briefing about what he called a fluid and dynamic situation in Egypt and government efforts to crack down on sweeping protests in major Egyptian cities.
"We will be reviewing our assistance posture based on events now and in the coming days." said Gibbs.
Washington gave Egypt $1.3 billion in military aid and $250 million in economic aid in the 2010 fiscal year.
