CAIRO: The U.S. Embassy in Cairo issued a statement on Saturday clarifying that the budget plan sent to congress on September 20 is a “standard administrative budget action” and is unrelated to any decision regarding U.S. aid to Egypt.

 Annual U.S. aid to Egypt totals $ 1.3 billion.

 Calls for suspending the aid increased following the June 30 protests that lead to the ouster of Egypt’s first elected President Mohamed Morsi, after one year in power.
