Cairo Reviews U.S. Ties With Envoy

CAIRO, Aug. 29 (UPI) — The U.S. envoy to Cairo relayed a message of economic and political support to the Egyptian government, the country’s prime minister said.

Egyptian Prime Minister Essam Sharaf welcomed U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson to his office in Cairo. Both leaders discussed efforts aimed at encouraging U.S. investments in Egypt as well as regional affairs.

“The ambassador sent appreciation and thanks message from President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to Egypt and its nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement. “(Patterson) expressed U.S. keenness on supporting Egypt political and economically in such significant phase.”

The Wall Street Journal in an early August report found that anti-American sentiment in post-revolution Egypt was at a high. The report points to a cover of a July edition of a state-run news magazine depicting Patterson lighting dynamite with a burning wad of U.S. dollar bills. The title of the edition reads in Arabic “Ambassador From Hell Is Setting Tahrir on Fire.”

The State Department announced recently that both sides decided to scrap this year’s scheduled drills with Egyptian and U.S. forces ad focus on planning for 2013 joint military exercises.

“The Egyptian government and the United States mutually agreed to postpone the 2011 exercise in light of ongoing transition events,” the State Department said.
