EU warns egypt over financial aid
The European (EU) Parliament passed a resolution threatening to withhold budget support to Egypt if it fails to take significant steps to abide by human rights, democracy, and the rule of law.
Essam El-Haddad, the president's assistant for foreign affairs, flew to Berlin on Friday morning for a two-day visit to discuss the resolution, according Al-Ahram Arabic-language news website.
The EU resolution also stated that EU member states should assist Egypt in retrieving assets smuggled overseas by Egypt's former regime, as a highly symbolic gesture for EU-Egypt relations.
