US to Send Senior Official to As-Sisi Inauguration

The United States will send a senior official from the State Department but nobody at the ministerial level to the swearing in of newly-elected Egyptian president Abdel Fatah As-Sisi, according to a Thursday-evening statement by a department spokeswoman.

The spokeswoman said the Obama administration expects to work with As-Sisi but the U.S. is still not satisfied with the pace of Egypt's return to democratic government.
