The U.S. has secretly stopped military aid to Egypt, the Daily Beast reports. But Saudi Arabia has already promised to fill the void.
The Daily Beast: “The U.S. government has decided privately to act as if the military takeover of Egypt was a coup, temporarily suspending most forms of military aid, despite deciding not to announce publicly a coup determination one way or the other.”
Enter the Saudis.
“To those who have announced they are cutting their aid to Egypt, or threatening to do that, (we say that) Arab and Muslim nations are rich… and will not hesitate to help Egypt,” Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said. (France 24)
