CAIRO - Egyptian officials involved in recent negotiations with US diplomats said on Saturday they believed that Washington planned to unblock military aid to Egypt, which has been embroiled in a dispute with the United States over democratic freedoms.

About $1.3 billion in military aid to Egypt that Congress approved for the current fiscal year was blocked under a new law requiring US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to certify that Egypt's military supports a transition to civilian rule.

But the law, passed in December, says Clinton can waive the requirement on grounds of national security.
