Annan discusses military cooperation with US intelligence agency director



A member of Egypt's ruling military council met on Wednesday with a US delegation led by Lieutenant General Ronald Burgess, director of the US Defense Intelligence Agency.

Lieutenant General Sami Annan, Egypt's armed forces chief of staff, attended the meeting along with other Supreme Council of the Armed Forces members.

The meeting tackled local, regional and international developments in addition to several issues of joint interest, including military cooperation.

Egypt receives US$1.3 billion annually in military aid from Washington. The countries’ armies also carry out joint military exercises each year known as "Bright Star."
