20 April 2017, 10:13 | Terri Saunders
US Secretary of Defense James Mattis meets Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and top brass in Cairo on Thursday, pledging support for the American ally on his first regional tour.
Earlier this month President Donald Trump moved to reset US relations with Egypt, hosting Sisi for talks at the White House and giving him firm backing, including in the fight against Islamist militants.
The bilateral relations between Egypt and US worsened during Trump's predecessor Barrack Obama's administration after the Egyptian military ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi in 2013.
Obama temporarily suspended military aid to Egypt following a bloody crackdown on Morsi's supporters.
According to the program of the visit, the meeting, appreciated here as a sign of the importance Egypt attaches to relations with the United States, addressed bilateral issues, including Washington's military assistance to Cairo, as well as aspects of Fight against terrorism.
