Head of Egypt’s General Intelligence Major General Mohamed El-Tohamy is scheduled to hold a closed meeting in Washington with US Secretary of State John Kerry later on Wednesday, according to the US State Department official website.

News of El-Tohamy's visit to the US capital comes less than 24 hours after the Obama administration said on Tuesday it had certified that Egypt is upholding its 35-year-old peace treaty with Israel and therefore qualifies for some military and counterterrorism assistance.
