Washington- US President Donald Trump is committed to providing military assistance to Egypt, White House spokesperson Sean Spicer said on Monday, after the new Republican leader spoke with counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Trump "underscored the United States remain committed to the bilateral relationship which helped both countries overcome challenges in the region for decades," he said.

Washington's annual $1.3bn in military aid was briefly suspended under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama in 2013, following the ouster of then president Mohamed Morsi, but was fully reinstated in 2015.
