U.S. not severing ties with Egypt through aid cuts - Kerry
KUALA LUMPUR Oct 10 (Reuters) - A decision by the United States to curtail aid to Egypt does not mean Washington is severing ties with the country, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Thursday, a day after the U.S. said it was halting some aid to Cairo's army-backed government.
"The interim government understands very well our commitment to the success of this government, which we want to see achieve, and by no means is this a withdrawal from our relationship or a severing of our serious commitment to helping the government," Kerry told reporters shortly after arriving in Malaysia.
