The United States decided to stop the delivery of four F-16 fighters to Egypt which was scheduled this week. The move comes in the wake of the recent developments in Egypt. USA values its relationship with Egypt but the delay was necessary as Egypt remains divided over the ouster of Mohamed Mursi, the first democratically elected President in the country. The United States considered it inappropriate to move forward with the delivery.

In another development, the US House of Representatives has also passed a resolution which forbids the US government to fund military operations in Egypt or to fund individuals, groups or organisations engaged in paramilitary activity.
