Cutting off military aid “arrogant,” tycoon Sawiris claims



Business tycoon Naguib Sawiris tweeted on Friday that cutting of U.S. military aid to Egypt is an arrogant act that could have adverse repercussions.
 
“Do not underestimate the dignity of the Egyptians,” he stressed.
 
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a press statement after arriving in Malaysia on Thursday that cutting some aid does not mean Washington is cutting ties with Cairo altogether.
