US embassy denies allegation published in Egyptian press on Monday

The US embassy has issued a statement denying an Al Masry Al Youm newspaper report on Monday that the US was pressuring Arab countries not to aid Egypt financially after the ruling military council appointed Kamel El-Ganzouri as prime minister instead of Mohamed ElBaradei.

“There is no truth to press reports alleging that the US has asked Arab countries to refrain from providing financial assistance to Egypt,” the statement issued on Tuesday read. “To the contrary, we are continuing to engage other international partners to look for ways to support Egypt during this transitional period.”
