Al Sissi calls for US help to battle ‘terror’

“Abdul Fattah Al Sissi, the general who ousted an elected Islamist president and is set to become Egypt’s next head of state, called on the United States to help fight jihadi terrorism to avoid the creation of new Afghanistan in the Middle East. In his first interview with an international news organisation in the run-up to the May 26-27 vote, Al Sissi called for the resumption of US military aid, worth $1.3 billion a year, which was partially frozen after a crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood.”
