The United States, which last month decided to deny Egypt $95.7 million in aid and to delay a further $195 million over human rights concerns, will consider resuming some suspended military assistance, US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday.

Asked if he would restart military to aid to Egypt, Trump told reporters as he began a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi: "We're going to certainly consider it."
