Egypt: U.S. Senator - U.S. Supports Egypt in Its War Against Terrorism

US Senator Tim Kaine, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee, said he expects the coming presidential elections in Egypt to be impartial.

During a meeting with a number of journalists at a Cairo hotel Thursday, Kaine denied that the US let down Egypt in its war against terrorism, highlighting that the relations between the two countries are strong and that Washington will support Egypt in the coming period.

Responding to a question on the US stance regarding the candidature of Defense Minister Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi in the presidential polls, Kaine said that there is no problem at all about this. What is important is the president's vision to solve the problems of the country, he said.

Earlier, Interim President Adly Mansour met with the visiting US senator where they discussed the Egyptian-US relations.
