The United States stands to lose its alliance with Egypt as Cairo turns to Russia for support, a development that would have major geo-political and strategic consequences, according to a team of national security experts who just returned from meeting with Egyptian officials.
While less than half of Egypt’s armed forces’ hardware is Soviet-pattern weaponry, Egypt’s reliance on Moscow and other non-American suppliers may rapidly increase unless Washington lifts its current embargo on U.S. military aid and equipment.
Members of the Council Global Security and London Center for Policy Research were in Cairo April 15-18 to meet with Field Marshal Abdul Fattah el-Sisi, who could become the next president of Egypt when the country holds presidential elections May 26-27.
The group also met with General of Intelligence Gen. Mohammed Farid el-Tohamy, Commander of the Egyptian Armed Forces and Minister of Defense Gen. Sedki Sobhy and Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy, along with other government officials, business leaders, religious clerics and members of civil society.
