CAIRO - Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry is no longer meeting US President Donald Trump's advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner on Wednesday, a copy of his schedule sent out to journalists showed.

A Foreign Ministry official told Reuters the meeting had been canceled but did not provide a reason. Shoukry had been scheduled to meet with a US 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.
