Egyptian leaders meet Kushner following U.S. aid cut

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry on Wednesday met with the U.S. delegation headed by presidential adviser Jared Kushner, AFP reported, after the meeting had earlier been dropped with no explanation.

Speculations arose that the meeting may have been originally cancelled due to Egyptian dissatisfaction with Washington's decision to freeze some of its military aid.
