Kerry to decide 'soon' on resuming Egypt aid

Secretary of State John Kerry testifies during a House Appropriations Committee hearing on Capitol Hill, March 12, 2014 in Washington, DCUS Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday he hoped to decide soon on whether to restore the full $1.5 billion in American aid to Egypt. We are committed to try to help make that happen,” Kerry told lawmakers at a hearing into the State Department’s 2015 budget request. Washington has struggled to define its policies towards Egypt since the military toppled democratically-elected Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July. While refusing to term Morsi’s ouster a “coup” arguing he had failed to heed the call for democratic reforms after long-term autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak was removed from office, Washington has warily eyed crackdowns by Egypt’s new military-installed leadership.
