White House: Egypt Aid Cutoff Not in U.S. Interest

The White House says cutting off aid immediately to Egypt wouldn’t be in the best interests of the United States.

White House press secretary Jay Carney says the U.S. is still reviewing whether the Egyptian military’s ouster of President Mohammed Morsi should be labeled a coup d’etat. Under U.S. law, that would force the U.S. to stop sending aid to Egypt.

Carney says the issue is complex and difficult. He says the U.S. is reviewing its obligations under the law and will consult with Congress. He says the decision about what to call Morsi’s ouster will be in line with U.S. policy objectives. He says the U.S. isn’t supporting any side in the conflict but wants a democratic process.
