Newscast Media CAIRO—Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met Wednesday with chief of the United States Military Central Command, Army General Lloyd J. Austin lll. 

State-run agency MENA reported that the two military officials discussed a set of regional and international issues as well as matters of common strategic interest. 

Austin also met with the chief of staff of the Egyptian military, Sedqy Sobhy, and talked about a string of issues relating to common military cooperation. 

The meetings were attended by several senior Egyptian army leaders as well as the acting US ambassador to Cairo. 

The US has been providing Egypt with US$1.3 billion in annual military aid. Washington had partially halted the finances after the army ousted Egypt's first elected leader Mohamed Morsy in July, which stoked tensions between the longtime political allies. Add Comments>>
