1 min read

John KerrySecretary of State John Kerry has announced that the U.S. government will supply Egypt with 10 Apache helicopters soon as part of U.S. military assistance to Egypt, Agence France-Presse reported Sunday.

AFP reports that Kerry met with Sameh Shoukri, Egyptian foreign minister, for a Sunday joint press conference in Cairo.

Officials say the U.S. gave $572 million in military aid to Egypt almost two weeks ago after the fund was approved by Congress, according to AFP.

The news agency notes that Egypt will use the money to finance defense contracts and plans to deploy Apache gunships in the Sinai Peninsula to support anti-terror initiatives there.
