CAIRO Oct 10 Egypt criticised on Thursday a
decision by the United States to halt some military and economic
aid to the army-backed government in the wake of a crackdown on
the Muslim Brotherhood.
"The decision was wrong. Egypt will not surrender to
American pressure and is continuing its path towards democracy
as set by the roadmap," Foreign Ministry spokesman Badr
Abdelatty told a private Egyptian radio station.
The Egyptian army ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in
July, installed an interim government and presented a political
roadmap it promised would lead to fair elections.
