US says reports of Egypt aid halt are false

Washington, October 9, 2013

The White House said that reports that said the US would halt all military assistance to Egypt are false.
The aid has been under review since the country's military ousted the government in July.
"The reports that we are halting all military assistance to Egypt are false," said Caitlin Hayden, spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council.
"We will announce the future of our assistance relationship with Egypt in the coming days, but as the president made clear at (the UN General Assembly), that assistance relationship will continue," Hayden said.  - Reuters
