A Foreign Ministry official told Reuters the meeting had been cancelled but did not provide a reason. Shoukry had been scheduled to meet with a U.S. delegation led by Kushner to discuss the Middle East peace process. Two US sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Tuesday that US authorities would deny Egypt $95.7 million in aid and delay a further $195 million payment over its failure to make progress on respecting human rights and democratic norms.
