Granger Statement on White House Decision to Suspend Some Aid to Egypt

Oct 9, 2013 Issues: National Security

Congresswoman Kay Granger today released the following statement after the White House announced a decision to suspend some aid to Egypt:

“I am very concerned that the Administration has announced the suspension of certain assistance for Egypt without consulting the Congress.  Pulling away now may undermine the ability of the United States to work with a critical partner. Egypt is going through a difficult transition, and while it does, the United States must preserve this partnership that has been so important to our national security, Israel’s security and the stability of the entire Middle East.”
