Source: TOI:

CAIRO: Egypt’s foreign minister said on Wednesday that relations between his country andthe United States are in “turmoil” followingWashington’s decision to suspend delivery of tanks, helicopters and fighter jets to Egypt.

The suspension, announced last week, came in response to the unrest in the wake of the July 3 military coup that ousted Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected president, and that led to the deaths of hundreds in police crackdowns.
